The first case for Louise Bonì

Louise Bonì, Chief Inspector with the crime squad, 42 years old, divorced, is faced with a dreary winter weekend and the shadows of the past. The memories of the dead and old flames are disrupted by a call from the department chief, and Louise gets the strangest assignment of her career: She is to find a Japanese monk, who is wandering through the snowy winter wasteland to the east of Freiburg in sandals and cowl, and find out what he is up to. Reluctantly she sets off. When she catches up with the monk, two things become very apparent: He is injured and he is on the run. Louise manages to dig up the background information with some difficultly and comes across a terrible crime, in whose wake her own life will undergo significant changes.
