Filmmysteriet The Movie Mystery

The JerryMaya Detective Agency #28

The famous film director Omar Rauk is coming to Valleby to make a movie, and he invites the Valleby residents to an audition. Muhammed Karat, Dino Panini and Rune Andersson are competing for the same extra role, but the film team puts them down. Instead, the role is offered to the chief constable if he agrees to be locked in a cage overnight to get in contact with his own feelings. The constable hesitantly agrees. On that very night, there is a burglary at the optician store. Nothing was stolen except for one watch, but the cellar floor has been opened. And the surveillance camera film is too blurry to show what really happened. Was the burglar looking for something? Jerry and Maya are suspicious. And it gets even weirder as an old letter is discovered, shedding light on the situation. Time for some detective work!
