Renate, an eighteen-year-old deaf mute, is found dead on a field on the Austrian-Hungarian border. The tenacious detective Elfriede Jandrasits is hereupon sent to the province of Burgenland to solve the case. A suspect is quickly found in the village: the Syrian refugee Achmet. Marvin Kren locates his racy provincial detective story at the precise spot where politics, village community, and the “will of the people” condense to an uncomfortable atmosphere of bias and hostility. (Diagonale)
