In Friedland the world is in order – or has been returned to order at least. In any event, according to locals the past happened a long time ago. But Friedland’s moor doesn‘t forget. And there‘s more to this moor than mysterious ruins, every once in a while it even spits out a body. And so the story (almost) begins, with the discovery of a moor corpse. Detective Saskia Harder arrives looking for a fresh start following the tragic conclusion to her mission as a police trainer in Afghanistan. Harder‘s investigation is supported by an awkward yet diligent local policeman as well as an enigmatic moor ranger who appears to know more than she is willing to admit. And just when it seemed like things couldn‘t get any more complicated, a live WWII bomb is spotted in the manor moat and is going to require detonation.
