Each corpse is posed in a way whose meaning no one can fathom. What point is the murderer trying to make?

    Elisenda Domènech, 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 predator 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, Elisenda finds herself forced to question her own values.

It soon becomes clear that this body is a mysterious corpse from the 1980s.

    Elisenda's team soon uncovers a complex world of star archaeologists, missing persons, and illicit antiquities. Remaining close to the crime scene, Elisenda is never far from enemies within the police force. Just as the case seems to become clear, it is blown wide-open by another horrific murder.

  • Special Operations Nouv.

    The battle is won, the enemy driven out, and everyone can breathe again. Many field generals thought this - but generals often make mistakes. Throughout World War II, specially trained soldiers made sure that the enemy never rested in peace. Command units struck anywhere and at any time: a German general was kidnapped in the middle of Crete, while commandos liberated Benito Mussolini from his prison on a mountain top. And British units blew up factories in a Norwegian town to deprive Germany of important raw materials. The warring parties also employed trickery, like when the Nazis tried to undermine Britain's economy with fake bank notes, or when the British planted false documents on the corpse of an "officer" detailing plans for an imminent invasion of Greece.
    This issue takes you undercover on some of the war's most daring missions.
