The story: 
Set in a small town in Switzerland, The Pledge centers around the murder of a young girl and a detective who vows to find the girl's perpetrator. After deciding the wrong man has been arrested for the crime, the detective becomes obsessed by his pledge to find the real murderer.

"The Pledge" was adapted for the screen in 2001. The Hollywood production was directed by Sean Penn, starring Jack Nicholson, Benicio del Torro, Patricia Clarkson and Helen Mirren.

The book discussion is part of our 100 years anniversary celebration of Friedrich Dürrenmatt.
