»The Scandinavian-mad crime readers in Germany don’t need to roam so far afield. As far as Freiburg is quite far enough.« Frankfurter Rundschau
»Our absolute favourite inspector« - Elmar Krekeler, DIE WELT
Berlin: A man is beaten up, the perpetrator escapes unrecognised. Crime Squad Chief Inspector Louise Bonì investigates, as one of the clues leads to Freiburg. A worrying case: The perpetrator seems to be a professional, the victim a secret service informer, the only witness knows more than she lets on, and the constitution protection services are operating behind the scenes, but refusing to cooperate. Louise Bonì is thwarted time and again – but when did that ever impress her? She senses that the net is tightening. But until she discovers the truth, it is already too late for one of the persons involved …
For Louise Bonì’s fifth case, Oliver Botteni creates a fascinatingly threatening atmosphere of tension that nobody can escape from.
