“Louise Bonì is back. A female chief inspector as we have never seen before. Haunted by avenging angels, herself one of them, unbearable with alcohol, even more when sober, a listening monster, staggering from one failed love to the next, ingenious instinct, unfit teamplayer, rebellious. Our absolute favourite Chief Inspector. A very hard, a very easy book.” Elmar Krekeler, Die Welt

On a rainy, foggy October weekend, a man suddenly appears in the garden of Nie-mann family in Freiburg. He is armed and attempts to break into the house. He only disappears after the Niemanns call the police. However, the man returns later that night - and makes a strange ultimatum. The Freiburg Police Chief Inspector Louise Bonì and her co-workers pursue their investigation under significant pressure. A rumor is circulating that the perpetrator comes from the Balkans. Bonì’s investigation leads her into a dangerous No Man’s Land and to a criminal who seems capable of anything.
