The Mistake is a story about plants and identity. Kryštof Warjak is a botanist who grows orchids and resells endangered plant species. He accepts an order from a rich Russian collector to smuggle an obscure, offically extinct flower from Japan to Europe. This apparently straightforward business deal turns into a nightmare after Kryštof is arrested upon his arrival in Prague. He is interrogated in connection with two ruthless murders since the only thing they have in common is Kryštof. Someone is after him, following his footsteps from Tokyo determined to act.
