A Murdered Diva Instead of Dolce Vita
Crystal clear water, its shores lined with cypresses, olive and fig trees, surrounded by a fantastic mountain panorama. A dream location in Northern Italy.
It makes you think of summer holidays, grand mansions, picturesque villages, Verdi and dolce vita. But in the small village of Abbadia Lariana the Mediterranean idyll is roughly disturbed. Angelika Krüger, an eccentric German opera singer, is found murdered in the priest’s garden. But the aging diva had only come to the land of wine and song in search of love and romance.
Inspector Giulia Cesare, 50, attractive, down to earth and known for her willingness to help, is in charge of this case. Together with her friend Brutus, a lovable, shy postman, she investigates this tricky murder case. The two of them quickly get involved with a whole range of suspects. It seems that Angelika Krüger may have gone a little bit too far in her search for love and engaged in affairs with a number of village men. The wives they cheated on would have just as strong a motive for murder as the husbands the diva discarded…
