They waited in complete silence and Alda could feel the tension growing in the room. Why didn‘t the man begin? Why didn‘t he say his piece? She looked fixedly at him. He turned slowly, his eyes flicker- ing from one place to another. Their eyes met for an instant. Then she saw it. The anguish.
During the shooting of the final scene in a movie, the main star, one of the country‘s most admired actors, drops down and dies in front of the photography team on the set who are unable to prevent it. One of the people present is Alda, the props manager, who has a colourful past. The life of the actor, however, seems to have been beyond reproach – no disorder, no enemies … When his death turns out to be murder, the police initiate a complicated investigation – but the bewitching Alda is never far off, curious about everything and everyone.
The Actor is an extremely lively and powerful bestseller, with a fast-moving plot and vivid characters.
