Silentium | 2004
The idyllic scenery of the old part of Salzburg seems to have become a magnet for suicides of late. Gottlieb Dornhelm, son-in-law of the president of the Salzburg Festival may not be the first victim but he is certainly the most prominent person to have been found dead at the foot of the Mönchberg. Convinced her husband's death was murder, Konstanze, hires Brenner to get on the case. After all, shortly before his death, the deceased created quite a scandal by talking to the press about his education whilst under the tutelage of the archbishop at the boys' seminary. At first Brenner's preliminary investigations don't appear to add up and not long passes before he finds himself under investigation himself.
