A Dark, Dark Man
When a boy is killed in a small Kazakh village, detective Bekzat plans a quick fix for the investigation and local police have already made arrangements for a fall guy. But when a journalist arrives to cover the investigation, the veteran policeman has to follow procedure for the first time in his career. A DARK-DARK MAN is just as dark and beautiful as Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s THE GENTLE INDIFFERENCE OF THE WORLD (BIFF 2018). This time, it’s Montesquieu’s ideas about how laws must be seen in a social and historical context that frame the story.
