In the south-west corner of Poland, far from any town or city, the Oder River curls sharply, creating a tiny inlet. The banks are matted with wild grass and shrouded by towering pine and oak trees. The only people who regularly trek to the area are fishermen – the inlet teems with perch and pike and sun bass. On a cold December day in 2000, three friends were casting there when one of them noticed something floating by the shore. At first, he thought it was a log, but as he drew closer he saw what looked like hair... A psychological thriller inspired by a 2008 New Yorker article by David Grann about a murder investigation of a slain business man that turns to clues found in a book about an eerily similar crime.
