Peaceful life in a small village, Podkowa Leśna, is disrupted by a murder. The body of the victim, a young woman, is found by Magda, a housewife and crime novel enthusiast. The investigation is conducted by police commissioner Jacek Sikora. Unfortunately, he does not have the mind of a true detective, unlike Magda. When it turns out that the victim wore a “W”-shaped pendant that belonged to a long lost friend of Magda, she decides to solve the case on her own. And that means constantly interrupting the work of the incompetent commissioner. There are many suspects, but little evidence. The clues lead to the most prominent citizens of Podkowa and even to the sheikh of Qatar… Will Magda and commissioner Sikora uncover the truth and solve the mystery of the murder?
