    Raimund Gregorius teaches classical languages at a Swiss lycée, and lives a life governed by routine. One day, a chance encounter with a Portuguese woman inspires him to question his life - and leads him to an extraordinary book that will open the possibility of changing it. Inspired by the words of Amadeu de Prado, a doctor whose intelligence and magnetism left a mark on everyone who met him and whose principles led him into a confrontation with Salazar’s dictatorship, Gregorius boards a train to Lisbon.

    Raimund Gregorious - Mundus, as his students affectionately call him - is a predictable character. A bookish Latin professor, well-respected but perhaps a little boring. One stormy morning, he encounters a beautiful, distraught Portuguese woman in a red leather coat... Later that day Raimund will realise: that moment changed everything. All of a sudden, nothing in his life feels right. His restlessness is further fuelled when he finds a book by a little-known Portuguese writer, Amadeo de Prado.

    In a quiet seaside town near Genoa, experts gather for a linguistics conference. One speaker, Philipp Perlmann, is recently widowed and, struggling to contend with his grief, is unable to write his keynote address. As the hour approaches, an increasingly desperate Perlmann decides to plagiarize the work of Leskov, a Russian colleague who cannot attend, and pass it off as his own.

    Med romanen "Nattog til Lissabon" har Pascal Mercier begejstret mange millioner læsere verden over. Her i sin nyeste roman - som forfatteren selv benævner 'novelle' - fortæller han historien om Lea. Og igen lykkes det ham på mesterlig vis at forbinde livsfilosofisk refleksion, spænding, psykologisk indføling og virtuos fortællekunst til en enestående læseoplevelse. En fortælling om menneskers fremmedhed for hinanden som sætter spørgsmålstegn ved, i hvilken udstrækning vi selv kan bestemme vores livsforløb.

    Den respekterede og berømte sprogforsker Philipp Perlmann mødes med en gruppe kolleger på et hotel på den italienske kyst i nærheden af Genova. Her skal årets internationale konference for lingvister foregå. Men Perlmann får problemer. Han føler ikke han kan leve op til de andres forventninger og et tiltagende ubehag ved den akademiske verdens præstationskrav. Som dagene går uden at han får skrevet på den tekst, han forventes at fremlægge, bliver situationen mere og mere panisk. Han finder en udvej, en nødløsning, som ender med at drive ham til at planlægge - det han forestiller sig er - det perfekte mord.
