Butcher by Nicolas Billon
An old man in a military uniform and a Santa hat is dumped at the police station. He doesn't speak English, but a lawyer's business card is baited on the meat hook that hangs on his neck. As a lawyer, a police officer and a translator struggle to unravel the truth, they uncover a past that won't stay buried, and a decades-old quest for justice that must be served. Haunted by the trauma of a hideous war crime, no one is who they seem.
