The Necklace of the Guardian Angel

The Waldviertel, a picturesque region between Vienna and the former Iron Curtain. A woman’s body floats on a large pond in the middle of the forest. Inspector Paul of the Lower Austria LKA in St. Pölten is faced with a mystery: the elderly woman’s apparent bathing accident could be a perfect murder. Without motive, without clues, without suspects. Could the victim perhaps have known something that cost him his life? Or is the crime connected to the disappearance of a young woman ten years ago?

Martin , her fiancé at the time, is now a police officer and investigates at Paul’s side – not yet knowing that the investigation will be closer to him than he would like.

With Fritz Karl, Michael Steinocher, Oliver Rosskopf, Nicole Heesters, Michael Rotschopf, Susi Stach and many more.
