There could be two sides to Maja Norberg that shift silently like quicksand: the question is, which one do you believe?
Is Maja a normal 18-year-old, the poster girl next door, popular and excelling at her schoolwork, caught in the middle of a terrible tragedy? Or is she the most reviled teenager in the country?
Either way, everyone knows her name. She has spent nine excruciating months in jail, awaiting trial for a mass murder that killed her boyfriend and her best friend, and now the time has come for her to enter the courtroom. What did she do? Or is it what she didn't do that brought her here?
Is Maja a cold-blooded murderer, or is she just a girl who has lost her way and, as a consequence, now lost the ones she loved?
