Another case for Brenner. This time a man named Horvath has disappeared, and Brenner, the laconic private investigator, unwillingly embarks on a search for the missing man. The trail takes him out to the provinces, “Löschenkohl”, or to be more exact, a gigantic chicken restaurant where thousands of chickens are gnawed down to the bone every weekend. Brenner notices the dangers hidden within almost too late – because the young landlady turns his head – and in the end he is lucky he still has a head to be turned.
