Synopsis

Duval, a reserved and dutiful accountant, is recruited under mysterious
circumstances to transcribe phone recordings for an unnamed organisation that is a branch of the French Ministry of Defence. Under the tightest security, he conducts his task in complete isolation, but when it eventually becomes apparent that a murder plot is underway, Duval is increasingly drawn into the perfidious world of intelligence services and political espionage. With The Eavesdropper, Thomas Kruithof delivers an up-to-the-minute thriller – quiet and focused, it ratchets up the tension to dizzying heights, and sketches a frightening, dystopic vision of the manipulation of public opinion.
