The warning his colleagues, the crime scene to enter, he dismisses tersely that he was no longer a rookie after 20 years of dealing with violent crimes. But the stench in the apartment puts him, the sight of the corpse drives him outside, and its snack comes him up again.

What he saw? A headless torso, showered with acid – more is not left over from the man who was called Hermann Born, formerly chairman was and briefly Minister of an estimated national party; a rabble-rouser, racist and anti-Semite with “noble” thought of his old SS times.

Where should Shepherd and his team, his theater company with ideal candidate for every job start, because this man had more enemies than friends ? Forensic, forensics, archival research, interviewing the neighbors, his last call (Who can be the number assigned?), Strange withdrawals (always around two thousand euros just before Frauenborn alone traveled to the summer cottage).

And therefore can shepherd supervisor Colonel Kamp put him to Salzburg, far off the beaten.

But this is where everything comes together. The crimes of National Socialism, whose perpetrators are already in the final phase of extinction, throw still their shadows across the land like Nosferatu’s long fingers, and here Shepherd will solve the case. The author Georg Haderer is unrecognizable. Whether he Schaefer pilfered a few pills? He entertains us in the best possible in a natural, light, logically coherent narrative flow, spiced with ironic to sarcastic venom splashes and wonderfully quirky compare (example: Having children is to try as unimaginable as in the tavern fried tarantulas for Shepherd …).
