Slottsmysteriet The Castle Mystery

The JerryMaya Detective Agency #26

What started as a generous chocolate tasting at the castle turns out to include a fantastic offer that promises huge rewards – if you’re willing to invest a little money. Jerry and Maya become suspicious, it sounds too good to be true. The residents of Valleby are tasting delicious chocolate at the castle, chocolate made by Count von Farsen himself. They soon find themselves fascinated by the successful count and his luxurious lifestyle. It’s something that they can all have, says the count, if they are prepared to invest some money in his new plantation. His servant, the deaf Floyd Nilson, keeps a watchful eye on all the guests during the tasting session and reports back to the count with handwritten notes. There seems to be something fishy going on! Jerry and Maya discover that the other rooms in the castle have been emptied of furniture and that there’s a motorbike in the garage ready to take off …
