Knives Out – Mord ist Familiensache

Harlan Thrombey ist tot! Und nicht nur das – der renommierte Krimiautor und Familienpatriarch wurde auf der Feier zu seinem 85. Geburtstag umgebracht. Doch natürlich wollen weder die versammelte exzentrische Verwandtschaft noch das treu ergebene Hauspersonal etwas gesehen haben. Ein Fall für Benoit Blanc! Der lässig-elegante Kommissar beginnt seine Ermittlungen und während sich sämtliche anwesenden Gäste alles andere als kooperativ zeigen, spitzt sich die Lage zu und das Misstrauen untereinander wächst. Ein komplexes Netz aus Lügen, falschen Fährten und Ablenkungsmanövern muss durchkämmt werden, um die Wahrheit hinter Thrombeys vorzeitigem Tod zu enthüllen.

À Couteaux Tirés

Célèbre auteur de polars, Harlan Thrombey est retrouvé mort dans sa somptueuse propriété, le soir de ses 85 ans. L’esprit affûté et la mine débonnaire, le détective Benoit Blanc est alors engagé par un commanditaire anonyme afin d’élucider l’affaire. Mais entre la famille d’Harlan qui s'entre-déchire et son personnel qui lui reste dévoué, Blanc plonge dans les méandres d’une enquête mouvementée, mêlant mensonges et fausses pistes, où les rebondissements s'enchaînent à un rythme effréné jusqu'à la toute dernière minute...
