Each corpse is posed in a way whose meaning no one can fathom. Which is precisely the point the murderer is trying to make. Elisenda Dom?nech, the solitary and haunted head of the city's newly-formed Serious Crime Unit, is determined to do all she can to stop the attacks. She believes the attacker is drawing on the city's legends to choose his targets, but her colleagues aren't convinced and her investigation is blocked at every turn. Battling against the increasing sympathy towards the killer displayed by the press, the public and even some of the police, she finds herself forced to question her own values.
