Are you a fan of Jo Nesbø or the Danish-Swedish series The Bridge? Then you’re sure to enjoy Procházková’s newest novel. In The Zodiac Murders, a myriad of peculiar people surface around a dead man found in a lake: from a cannabis grower to a famous architect, a promiscuous cop to a mysterious woman from Cuba. How many motives can one murder have? We follow the unorthodox criminologist Holina as he struggles through the maze of the investigation. At the same time the novel looks deep into lives connected by a mesh of strong emotions and contradictory actions.

Procházková is the recipient of many awards – five Golden Ribbons, two Magnesia Literas in the category of books for children and youth, as well as the most prestigious German award for children’s books, the Friedrich Gerstäcker Award. Her books have been translated into many languages, especially German.
