October 1914: the destroyer Svea emerges from the Stockholm archipelago bearing south-south-east. On board is Lars Tobiasson-Svartman, a naval engineer charged with making depth soundings to find a navigable channel for the Swedish navy. He has always been fascinated by measurement; nothing is as magical as exact knowledge. His instinct for his profession is reflected in the comfortable domesticity he enjoys with his wife - herself meticulous in every detail.
Close to the waters where soundings are taken Tobiasson-Svartman alights on a barren skerry, presumed uninhabited, and is surprised to discover a young woman. Despite her almost feral appearance, something about her strikes him to the core.
The mission is a success and the Svea returns to Gothenburg. Tobiasson-Svartman, however, remains haunted by his chance encounter; his equilibrium has been disturbed, and he feels compelled to return.
