Their final destination is Russia, where they settle with two young children. Over time, Claudia begins to feel marginalized in her life at home. She views Michael as a house-husband and a slave to their daughters. In anger Claudia turns to a Russian businessman with money and power. Interested in Russian art, Claudia is attracted to Yuris idea of smuggling icons across the border into Finland. Claudia gets caught. Yuri gets killed. Claudias defense at her trial is in the hands of an attractive young attorney, one of Michaels acquaintances. Claudia is suspicious, but Michael convinces her that Tanya is a brilliant trial lawyer with an impressive record of wins. Tanyas strategy rests on punishment, not on guilt or innocence. Central to Tanyas argument is a psychological profile of Claudia in the context of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
