Two fatal car crashes within only a few days. Braking marks are missing in both cases. Murder‐suicide, tragical accident? At least that is what the responsible police officers think. Murder!, police inspector Carla Bukowski is sure. But: She must not investigate. She’s on leave. Only because of a stupid kneejerk reaction. So she goes it alone and soon faces more and more inconsistencies: An old woman tells her about God’s green finger. A young mother finds her daughter’s rabbits dead in the garden. And the two victims are former class mates. Is the next victim already sure to follow? Investigations become tougher and tougher. And Bukowski finally has to ask herself, if she investigated in a case that has never been one after all ... Lena Avanzini knows her field: Carla Bukowski is tough, colourful and unstoppable. In her first case she struggles through a thick web of lies, dark secrets and wild vindictiveness.
If Lena Avanzini is not just devoting herself to music, she murders. Whether in her cellar, on the train or in a cosy café. Only on paper, of course. Her preference: between three and seven bodies. And self made apricot cake. For her first novel “Tod in Innsbruck” (“Death in Innsbruck”) she was awarded the Friedrich Glauser price in the category debut. From now on Carla Bukowski, Lena Avanzini’s latest creation, investigates in a three‐volume series at Haymon.
