Description

Detective Carol Reed has big plans for her fourth Midsummer's Eve in Sweden. And it is only three days away. She hopes to get some work done on her dollhouse and her allotment. But her neighbor needs her help. His son is missing and he fears that his son is somehow involved in a murder.

Just like the previous games in the series, this is a first person point and click adventure with many inventory puzzles that only uses the mouse. New is the hint system who tells you were to go or what to do. You also receive feedback when a new locations opens up.

The graphics consists of still photographs with a watercolor filter. The many characters you meet don't have the filter so they really stand out. The dialog is in English with English subtitles.
