Cracow, 1893. Desperate to relieve her boredom and improve her social standing, Zofia Turbotynska decides to organise a charity raffle. In a bid to recruit the patronage of elderly aristocratic ladies, she visits Helcel House, a retirement home run by nuns.

But when two of the residents are found dead, Zofia discovers that her real talents lie in solving crimes is solving mysteries.

Inspired by Agatha Christie and filled with period character and zesty charm, series opener Mrs Mohr Goes Missing vividly recreates life in turn-of-the-century Poland, confronting a range of issues from class prejudice to women's rights, and proves that everyone is capable of finding their passion in life, however unlikely their passion may seem.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An ingenious marriage of comedy and crime.' - Olga Tokarczuk, 2018 winner of the Man Booker International prize 

'This is a delicious read.' - Michal Rusinek

'Highly comical...an extremely absorbing novel.' - Kurzojady

'Charming and moreish...this is a tale that conjures up the delightful books of Dorothy L Sayers and is the perfect diversion for annoying commutes.' - Stylist top books for March 

'How have Dehnel and Tarczynski pulled it off? By not taking the easy option, but by taking pains to recreate the Krakow of more than a century ago, comically satirising the haughty city without resorting to malice. As we read this book, we love and loathe old-time Krakow equally. And that's just what the authors wanted.' - Gazeta Wyborcza

'Think Wes Anderson meets Agatha Christie. Szymiczkowa's work is a well-crafted page-turner, but also offers a deeper comment on sexism and gender inequality in contemporary Poland.' - Calvert Journal
