Winter Hunt by Astrid Schult 

“In this taut psychological thriller, a woman tries to take justice into her own hands as she shows up on the doorstep of a remote mansion. Lena claims her car has broken down, but her arrival is intentional. She is in pursuit of Anselm, an elderly Auschwitz guard who lives with his daughter Maria. They both deny Anselm’s Nazi past, but Lena is determined to get him to confess. “(TJFF)
