Something just happened in Salzburg. The son-in-law of the Festival president is dead. An alleged suicide. For the Church a blessing in disguise. After all, the suicide victim had recently caused quite an uproar by publicizing the scandalous recollections of his boyhood at the Catholic boarding school. Former police detective Brenner has other worries. But the victim’s attractive widow comes on to him with sweettalk and a sweet offer to match. She thinks her husband was murdered. She wants to hire Brenner to prove it. Lucky for him his old pal Berti shows up to help him out.
Their investigations lead them into the monastic realm of silentium and behind the scenes at the Salzburg Festival. Brenner gets framed, is suspected of murder, and just barely escapes being murdered himself.
In the end, the case is solved, but the cream of society has its own conception of justice… Based on a novel by Wolf Haas.
