Description

A whodunnit that pits reason against distrust. Soon after big-shot prosecutor Teodor Szacki moves to the city of Sandomierz, he is called in to solve a case: a woman was found dead outside a synagogue, her neck slashed, and a knife used for shechita (kosher slaughter of animals) found nearby. As more murders occur, a wave of anti-Semitism unfurls and Szacki must not only to solve the crimes, but also face the hysteria of public opinion and the painful history of Polish-Jewish relations. Based on the bestselling novel by Polish author Zygmunt Miloszewski. Note: Graphic scenes.
