Jasmine is naively unprepared for her Saint Valentine's unceremonious breakup; naively unprepared for the university internship horrors awaiting her at Mozartstraße 9; spectacularly unprepared too for the news she discovers that had spread like demonic wildfire throughout the world's press; and wholly unprepared for the second-floor ward at the Psychiatric Department of the Vienna City Hospital.
Dan is fully aware of his sense of self after divorce and the loss of his daughter.

But despite their respective free will choices, neither will ever remain completely unshackled from the obsessive, sadistic impulses of the Kierkegaard Killer.
