Ett litet korn av sanning /A Grain of Truth

A woman is found wandering the corridors at Nobel Hospital, accompanied by a little boy. She appears to be looking for an older man who was involved in a car accident earlier in the day. In one of the emergency rooms, Tekla Berg is fighting to save a seriously injured person from the same car accident. The ensuing chaos is nothing anyone could ever have predicted and the events puzzle both the hospital staff, the police and everyone else involved.

Hospital Director Monica Carlsson has really moved up a gear in her attempt to privatise Nobel Hospital with the launch of an exclusive patient hotel, a controversial liver transplant unit and the prestigious recruitment of star surgeon Klas Nyström. It soon becomes obvious that Klas is actively working against Tekla in every way. Meanwhile, Tekla has become obsessed with the mystery surrounding the woman and the little boy. The boy’s identity remains unknown and there are no traces to his past. What she eventually finds will be beyond belief.
