In the small town of Galicia, a young saxophonist is found dead in his swanky flat. The murder seems to have taken place after a sexual encounter: there are two whiskey glasses in the living room, and the dead man is tied by the wrists to the headboard of his bed. But further clues are impossible, as his thighs, stomach and groin are so badly burned. The cold blooded and cruel murder is assigned to police inspector Leo Caldas, a man who also moonlights as the host of a phone-in radio show that attracts callers with a wide range of complaints.
