Sabine  Thiesler - The Collector of Children


Tuscany 2004. He can already count six children as his victims, and now he is hunting for his seventh. Thus far he has been able to cover his tracks and take on new identities. But then he makes his first mistake, and the police finally have him in their sites.

Anne and her husband Harold experience a parent’s worst nightmare. While they are on holiday in Tuscany, their son disappears without a trace while playing. Two weeks pass, and there are still no leads. The parents have no choice but to return home without him. Ten years later, Anne returns to the place of her son’s disappearance to try once again to discover what happened. She buys a romantic mill house in a secluded valley from a charismatic German. The man fascinates her, and after a short while she comes to trust him completely. She is unaware that this charming, friendly man is a serial killer who has murdered children in Germany and Italy and for years now has been hiding in seclusion in the mountains of Tuscany.
