Chapter 14 Summary

Maundy Thursday, March 24

Modig keeps trying to reach Bjurman. She calls his apartment and his cell phone and visits every neighbor who is home. She finally leaves a message on his answering machine and places a note on his door, asking him to call her. When some instinct moves Modig to try the door handle, she discovers the door is unlocked and goes into his apartment. One of the first things she sees is an empty Colt Magnum pistol box. She pulls out her revolver, feeling as if something is amiss. She walks through the bedroom door and finds Bjurman, naked and kneeling beside his bed, as if he were saying his prayers. He has been shot through the head, and he is undeniably dead. Modig calls Ekstrom.
