It is the start of the summer holidays for Quinquin, and it is also the start of a local killing spree after a woman is found chopped up and fed to a cow, who is found dead in an old bunker.
One of Li’l Quinquin’s delights is Capt. Van der Weyden, an amusing austere version of Inspector Clouseau. His peculiar nervous tics are part of the treat and reveal Dumont’s predilection for characters that don’t quite fit into the so-called normality. But what is normal?, he seems to be asking us.
