Summary (From the publisher):

During the course of an idyllic summer's day in the country, a senseless crime is committed. The Swordfish centres its gaze on the young Martin Ghyselen, a loner who seeks solace, from the passions, desire and grief that unite the rest of the villagers, in his own fertile imagination. He escapes into his own fantasy world first identifying with a swordfish and then tragically believing he is the martyred Jesus Christ.
