Warsaw, 1941. The body of a beautiful young woman, the wife of a prominent lawyer, is found in a pool of blood on the couple’s kitchen table. Investigating the case, a Polish police detective is led to the Nazi-occupied city’s underworld, where fake identities, corruption and sex create a menacing and dangerously seductive atmosphere. Fusing classic film noir motifs with a disconcerting vision of a sieged city, Black Mercedes is a wholly unique whodunit murder mystery.
