The Man Who Wanted to Know Everything, the third book in the researcher Abraham Abraham series, is the most daring novel in the series so far.
In the middle of a stormy winter day, Inspector Avraham Avraham is called to the scene of his first murder in his new position as chief of the investigation department and is amazed to discover that he knows the victim: a middle-aged woman who has already been attacked before. The only clue to solving the mystery is testimony about a police officer who was seen descending the stairs of the building shortly after the murder. Avraham is determined to find the policeman who disappeared without a trace, even if he pays for it by clashing with his superiors. His investigation will lead him to Mellie Bengtson, a young woman trying to rebuild her life after a trauma she refuses to talk about. Mellie knows nothing about the murder, yet she will change everything Abraham thought he knew about the case.
The Man Who Wanted to Know Everything is told from two points of view: that of Avraham Avraham and that of Meli Bengston, an unforgettable character who enters the depths of the heart. With their help, Dror Mishani paints a breathtaking portrait of a married life gone wrong and tells a story of a long-standing love that death and a terrible passion bring to the last test.
