Who killed Jenny Engel?
The lifeless body of the young teenager is found in the forest surrounding the village of Manscheid in northern Luxembourg.
Luc Capitani, the police officer assigned to the case, is from the mining south of the country and has a hard time dealing with the mentality of the locals.
Elsa Ley, a young policewoman from the village, steps up as his assistant, yet he soon finds himself mixed up in a complicated intrigue where nothing is as it appears and every inhabitant seems to know more than they are willing to let on.
Over the course of the investigation, Luc Capitani not only has to track a murderer but also to break down a mindset, a system, in which many people are being manipulated for “the common good”.
One by one, Capitani untangles the web of lies weaved by the villagers and finds himself faced with his own conscience at the very moment he discovers the suffocating truth…
