Bruno -- as he is affectionately nicknamed -- may be the towns only municipal policeman, but in the hearts and minds of its denizens, he is chief of police.Bruno is a former soldier who has embraced the pleasures and slow rhythms of country life -- living in his restored shepherds cottage- patronizing the weekly market- sparring with, and basically ignoring, the European Union bureaucrats from Brussels.

He has a gun but never wears it- he has the power to arrest but never uses it. But then the murder of an elderly North African who fought in the French army changes everything and galvanizes Brunos attention: the man was found with a swastika carved into his chest.Because of the cases potential political ramifications, a young policewoman is sent from Paris to aid Bruno with his investigation.

His investigation draws him into one of the darkest chapters of French history -- World War II, a time of terror and betrayal that set brother against brother. Bruno soon discovers that even his seemingly perfect corner of la belle France is not exempt from that periods sinister legacy.
