Murderous idyll: the killer is toying with her.
A shell with a cross. Carved into a piece of wood in her garden in the idyllic neighbourhood of Ochsenwerder on the River Elbe in Hamburg. Former inspector Bett Hansen, 53, is alarmed. She has seen this sign before. On a high seat, from which a management consultant and his trainer were murdered during an archery session. It was her last case, so far unsolved. She had to give up her job because she was suffering from a sleep disorder that causes her to fall asleep involuntarily. The perpetrator knows about her illness and is closing in on her.
