The Valley in the Fog (Commissario Grauner 4)

In his fourth case, Commissario Johann Grauner has to deal with dark forces that cause mayhem far beyond the borders of South Tyrol

In the late fall, when the fog hangs thick between the countless apple trees, the bodies of two women are discovered in the lowlands. No mayor or priest has anything to say down here, in the wide valley between the sloping vineyards; down here, the farmers call the shots. They quickly present Commissario Grauner and his Neapolitan colleague Saltapepe with the murderer: according to them, Heinrich Zwölfer did it. Yet a mysterious scrap of paper makes the investigators doubt this conclusion. Grauner sounds out the fruit and wine growers, and accidentally winds up at a symposium on Gewürztraminer. Meanwhile, Saltapepe interrogates prostitutes along the state highway by night, oblivious to the shadows creeping up on him from between the apple trees…
