In August 1995, the fire brigade on the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea are called out to a house fire. When they arrive on the scene, they find a seven-year-old boy at the back of the house. He’s badly burnt. When asked if there’s anyone inside, he replies: my mother, my little brother and the woman who started the fire.
