The apartment at Riddargatan in Stockholm has become our home, our sanctuary. It’s where we have found our new life without Calle and Jesper. Life how it is today: just my little Lucas and me.

Anna Holm has moved on since her true love Calle died in an accident. Today, she is chairman for Vansbo real estate and strives to solve the puzzle of day to day life. A new love affair is low on the list, after board meetings and making lunches for three-year old Lucas’ many excursions.


At a fair in Cannes, Anna meets the charismatic banker Fabian and is swept away in a passionate relationship. But it is not only the passion that intrigues her – Fabian also comes with an irresistible business offer, a huge real estate deal in Berlin. That means more time for Anna in Berlin, and more time with Fabian. At the same time, she has a bad conscience regarding Lucas. She is always the last one to pick him up at pre-school and becomes more and more annoyed with child minder Filip, whom Lucas adores. Filip with his worn jeans and t-shirt and his ocean blue eyes that seem to see right through her.


You should separate business and pleasure, or do you really need to? The affair with Fabian takes more and more time from Anna, both in work and private. Soon she feels she is losing her bearings. And as if that isn’t enough, Filip refuses to leave her alone. Now he even wants to meet her and Lucas over coffee.
