Set in St Petersburg, the historical mystery may be called a winter tale. The main personage, the globe-trotter Oscar Maria Graf is a younger contemporary of Oscar Wilde. A Stenbock-like figure, by his origin and his dabbling in literature, Oscar Graf is much hotter, more active and pragmatic than Eric Stenbock (1860-1895) who is no more, by the time of the story.
