Overview

Hopetoun, Westaustralien: In der Nickelabbau-Boomtown wird ein kopfloser menschlicher Torso ans Ufer geschwemmt. Gelegenheit für den in Ungnade gefallenen ehemaligen Vorzeigebullen Cato Kwong, sich zu beweisen. Der Polizist chinesischer Abstammung will weg von dem Posten, auf den er zwangsversetzt wurde. Nachdem der zum Torso gehörende Kopf gefunden wurde, weiß die Polizei zwar, dass der Tote ein Chinese ist, und ein Minenarbeiter gesteht den Mord an seinem Kollegen, doch das Geständnis scheint der Polizei erkauft. Steckt ein polizeibekannter Drogendealer hinter den Verbrechen?
Gleichzeitig sucht der britische Ex-Detective Stuart Miller nach einem Mann, der vor 30 Jahren in England seine eigene Familie umgebracht hat und nun in Australien aufgetaucht zu sein scheint. Als es auch unter den Polizisten Tote gibt, muss Cato feststellen, dass er zwar den kriminellen Bodensatz der Stadt aufgewirbelt hat, aber der Lösung nicht näher gekommen ist.

Prime Cut hat alles, was ein Spitzenkrimi braucht: Der Außenseiter Cato Kwong ist ein vielschichtiger Ermittler und hat das Zeug zum Serienhelden. Der Dokumentarfilmer Alan Carter zeichnet die Atmosphäre der kleinen Minenstadt am Rand der Welt mit britischem Wortwitz und großem Gespür für soziale Brüche.

Ein großartiges Debüt in der Tradition Arthur W. Upfields, Garry Dishers, Michael Robothams und Peter Temples.
