SYNOPSIS

A mutilated body, limbs tied, drifts down the Oder River where local fishermen discover it after a few days.   The terrifying discovery becomes a media sensation.  The victim is identified as Mariusz Roszewski, an architect, but the murderer is never found.  The case is closed due to lack of evidence.

Four years later, an anonymous tip ties the murder to the plot of the crime novel “Amok” by Krystian Bala.  Jacek Sokolski, an inquisitive officer with a dark past, decides to check the authenticity of the tip.  He quickly discovers similarities between the murder and the crime described in the novel.  When the police officer meets the author a new light is shed on the case, and the intrigue that follows blurs fiction and reality, truth and falsehood.  In the emotional duel that begins between the author, Bala, and the investigator, Sokolski, there can only be one winner.
