Denis McGrath from the novel by Jean-Christophe Grangé
Plot: Jonathan Anselme, a young English academic, teams up with Max Böhm, an amateur ornithologist, to follow storks on their migration from Switzerland to Africa. Max wants to find out why some birds never return from this journey.
However, after Max is found dead in mysterious circumstances, Jonathan decides to make the trip alone, never suspecting that he will find himself caught up in an international web of intrigue.
While the Swiss detective Dumaz investigates Max Böhm’s murky past, Jonathan is forced to confront his own troubled history.
He uncovers a trail of grisly murders travelling through Bulgaria, Turkey, the Middle East, Congo along the pathway of the migrating storks and their deadly secret.
Notes: This miniseries is a co-production with South Africa and Germany and was developed by Canal Plus.
