The kidnapper doesn't run around with a large knife or axe, he does not grin maniacally, he doesn't have a scary tone of voice, he looks entirely like an ordinary man.

Young lovers Rex and Saskia are on holiday. They stop at a busy service station and Saskia disappears. Rex dedicates the next three years trying to find her. Then he receives some postcards from her abductor, who promises to reveal what has happened to Saskia. The abductor, Raymond Lemorne, is a chilling character to whom Rex is drawn by his intense desire to learn the truth behind his lovers disappearance. But the truth is more sinister than he dared imagine.

"9.7, PC Pisteytyksieni perusteella ainakin pidin enemmän tästä kuin jenkkien uusintaversiosta, jonka joskus olen kai nähnyt. Kolkko ja ahdistava tunnelma sekä mieleenpainuva tunnari. Kidnappaajahahmo oli mielenkiintoinen."
