The process of getting dressed to go home begins. They have come warmly dressed and it takes quite a while to put on all their outdoor clothes. We remind Fredrik and Victor that Jorge will be out of town when they have their next appointment so the three of us will meet without him, as we have agreed. Fredrik has already been given this information, but he and Victor still look surprised. They do not want any changes. Life before and after While Victor and I are in the playroom, Fredrik tells Jorge about his desolation and about how he views their situation.

Both Fredrik’s parents, Grandpa Erik and Grandma Maria, are pensioners. His two younger brothers, Johan and Anton, are identical twins, twenty-two years of age. They live at home with their parents in a neighbouring suburb. The in-laws, Grandpa Bertil and Grandma Marianne, live in the same suburb as Fredrik. He explains that he and Malin had bought the house there in order to be close to them. Malin’s sister, Anna, has her own family, a husband and a one-year-old daughter. The entire family, except Malin’s brother Martin, who is studying abroad, live around Stockholm.

The family had been on their way to celebrate Christmas with good friends. It was to have been little Oliver’s first Christmas. All of a sudden they ran into black ice and a head-on collision could not be avoided. Fredrik’s wife Malin and Oliver, who was six months old, died of internal injuries. “I just can’t grasp that they’re gone. This is the worst thing that could happen to us, the worst thing imaginable,” Fredrik tells Jorge. Fredrik broke several ribs and suffered a concussion and cuts, but most of his injuries have healed by now.
