A race against the clock begins. The police must find the killer before another woman dies.

The investigation reveals dark secrets from the nun’s past and uncovers greater or lesser sins of the residents of the apparently quiet and idyllic village.

Only one thing disturbs the peace of the village: in a few days the murderer will return to Lipowo. For fifteen long years no one in the village has ever pronounced his name. Daniel Podgorski has a special reason to hate the notorious man. It was he who caused the fire in which Podgorski’s father heroically died.

As if that alone was not enough, mysterious siblings come to Lipowo and for some reason threaten one of the residents. Podgorski is trying to keep the situation under control. He does not expect, however, that on the day before Christmas Eve deadly fire will burst into flames once again. Who will die this time?

It soon becomes clear that she was right and the elderly florist was indeed killed.

Podgorski and Commissioner Clementine Kopp face another difficult task. Who would bear malice to a lonely old lady? Why did they tattoo a strange undecipherable inscription on her chest? And how is that all connected with a story of a young couple from a hundred and sixty years ago?
