`A triumph of tone, very moving, completely convincing' - ANDREW MARR


`A Baltic Brief Encounter' - INDEPENDENT


Every morning, Mayor Tibo Krovic stops off at the local cafe on his way to work. He drinks his Viennese coffee with extra figs, leaves a bag of sweets for the owner, and then continues on to his office. There he awaits the arrival of his secretary: the beautiful, married, but lonely, Agathe Stopak.


In the respectable town of Dot, there is nothing the good Mayor Tibo can do about his love for Mrs Stopak. Until one day Agathe accidentally drops her lunch into the fountain and a family tragedy is revealed. In that moment, everything changes.


The Good Mayor is a magical story of fate and chance, of loss and love.
