Mord im Zeichen des Zen
TV MOVIE (2014)
Louise Bonì, detective chief inspector at the criminal investigation department of Aachen, chases an injured Japanese monk who wanders around silently in the countryside. The monk is apparently on the run and Louise is trying to solve the mystery of his wanderings. With the help of Japanese interpreter Richard Landen she slowly gathers clues.
But then she finds her colleague Hollerer wounded in the woods. Not far away from him lies the body of her other colleague, Niksch. Still no trace of the monk.
The investigation leads Louise to the dubious Zen-cloister Kanzan-an, where, alongside monks, Asian children are living while waiting for their parents. Is this a connection? Not only does Louise have to deal with this mysterious case, she also battles with her father and her own addiction.
