The fourth book of the popular suspense series The Rescue Planet Club

Vanja and Sivert are looking forward to showing Mo the annual Christmas Market. Every year the town square is filled with market stalls and in the middle of the square Vanja’s parents are going to put up an enormous Christmas tree. And on top of all this, every year Santa Claus pays a visit on a sleigh drawn by real reindeer!

But this year the market is a disappointment. There is no snow on the ground when the Planet Rescue Club arrives at the Christmas Market. And when the moment comes for the lighting of the Christmas tree, they discover that someone has chopped the tree into pieces. And Santa Claus doesn’t even arrive with his reindeer!

Who has destroyed the Christmas tree? And what happened to Santa Claus? Can there be a connection between these two mysteries?
