In this award-winning crime thriller, a police inspector searches for the missing wife of a local doctor. After neighbors complain of hearing screams, the officer goes to investigate, but the doctor claims his wife is under medical care and cannot come to the door. The next day however, the doctor is in the police station filing a missing person report. Mistrustful of a man who can only produce one small photo of his spouse, the officer returns to the doctor’s house and concludes that no woman has been living there at all. What follows is an intricately plotted tale of infidelity, revenge, and blackmail, that will keep you guessing to the very end, and the quaint little misty hill town of Rimtik will be shaken to its core as the inspector digs deep into the doctor’s unusual life.
