The Comforter

A woman walking home after an evening with her friends suddenly hears loud crying from the cemetery shadows. As she pulls out her cell phone to call for help, a figure leaps out in front of her and she feels a sudden burning pain in her stomach before everything goes dark.
Veronika Lundborg is on call when the woman with a gunshot wound is wheeled in. The operation appears to be successful, but only a few hours later the woman is found dead in her hospital bed.
Veronika is reported to the authorities – did she make a bad judgment which cost the woman her life, or is there something more bestial behind this death?
