About the Book

The body of a woman is discovered in a small park in the centre of Ljubljana. She has been shot in the head. A day later a man dies in the same way in another part of town. Are the murders linked? Ljubljana is sweltering in a heat wave, a new government is being set up in Slovenia after recent elections, and even without this, police inspector Taras Birsa is having enough troubles of his own.

TV series were made based on this book which were filmed by Slovenia’s national public broadcasting organisation Radio Television Slovenia (RTV Slovenia).
