Wolwedans in die Skemer

TV series, 1987

TV adaptation of the hugely popular 1981 radio drama, about the murderous "wolf" terrorising the residents of Hotel Nyala - particularly the new receptionist, Sonja Daneel, whose memory loss seems to hide certain horrors in her past, as well as the identity of the murderer. But will she remember before she falls victim to the killer's axe? The TV series had new twists and intrigues. In 2012, Wolwedans in die Skemer became a film and another novel, once again with new surprises.
