GUARDIAN ANGEL. A KLUFTINGER CRIME

As a young country cop, Kluftinger wasn't able to prevent the theft of the relic St. Magnus. Now, finally, it's coming home to be displayed. So he's deeply hurt when his boss Lodenbacher puts fellow officer Maier in charge of security for the opening of the exhibit. He wishes he could've made up for his earlier failure instead of being assigned to the murder of a little old lady. But Kluftinger being Kluftinger, he starts to sense there's a connection between the two cases.
