Plot summary

Rolf Nordmark and Eva Berg both work as teachers at Ringsala boarding school. Rolf has long been in love with Eva, but when the semester begins again in the fall, he learns that she is to leave her job and marry a newly hired teacher at the school, Birger Sjögren. Rolf and Eva continues their friendship, but Birger who is very jealous thinks that it is more than that and becomes more and more angry.

A series of mysterious fires begins to take place around the school. Per Sahlén, one of the students, is sure that he has seen the severe Latin teacher Sjögren setting fire to a barn. But can he convince the trusted and psychologically skilled teacher Nordmark of his suspicions in time to stop a disaster?
