Menschen heiraten aus Liebe. Zumindest glauben sie das im second der Eheschließung. Schade, dass dieser Zustand nicht immer von Dauer ist. Scheidung wäre zwar eine choice, doch sind die Protagonisten in den Kurzgeschichten von Krimiautor Stephan Hähnel weitaus kreativer. Und so entledigen sie sich ihrer Ehepartner lieber auf unkonventionelle Weise, manchmal blutig, auch mal unbeabsichtigt, aber stets endgültig.
