Summary Fenia Xenopoulou, a Greek Cypriot recently 'promoted' to the Directorate-General for Culture, is tasked with revamping the boring image of the European Commission with the Big Jubilee Project. She endorses her Austrian assistant Martin Sussman's idea to proclaim Auschwitz as its birthplace-- to the horror of the other nation states. Meanwhile, Inspector Émile Brunfaut attempts to solve a gritty murder being suppressed at the highest level; Matek, a Polish hitman who regrets having never become a priest, scrambles after taking out the wrong man; and outraged pig farmers protest trade restrictions as a brave escapee squeals through the streets. -- adapted from jacket
