It was in 1946 that the world fi rst came to hear of a coral atoll in the Marshall Islands called Bikini. The following year, French couturier Louis Réard borrowed the name and applied it to a bathing costume for women. Breaking from decades of conformity, Réard dared to 'undress' women's bodies in order to better emphasize what remained clothed - albeit in tiny wisps of material. By taking up the bikini as popular beachwear, women also found themselves thinking differently about their bodies. An ideal of perfection was reinforced by the appearance on the cinema screen of stars such as Marilyn

Andrija Sucic wurde vor seinem Haus hingerichtet. Der ehemalige Elitesoldat und Bodyguard des kroatischen Präsidenten redete einfach zuviel: Massengräber, Morde an Zivilisten, ethnische Säuberungen - und diese seltsame Geschichte mit den Elefanten. Sucic hatte offensichtlich den Verstand verloren. Dennoch: Seine Geschichten hätten den Mächtigen im neu gegründeten Staat gefährlich werden können. Aber seine Ermordung scheint niemanden zu interessieren, ausser seinen Sohn Bo?ko, der im nationalen Sicherheitsdienst arbeitet und beschliesst, auf eigene Faust zu ermitteln. Seine Nachforschungen führen ihn tief in den Sumpf aus Krieg und Kriminalität, in dem der neue Staat geformt wurde, in Hinterzimmer, in denen sich Staatsanwälte, Generäle und Politiker mit Mafiosi treffen, die aus den "drei Strassen in Frankfurt, in denen nicht deutsch gesprochen wird" in das Vaterland heimkehrten. Ivica Djikic wurde 1977 im bosnischen Duvno / Tomislavgrad geboren und arbeitet als Journalist und Redakteur für kroatische Wochen- und Tageszeitungen. Sein Debütroman 'Circus Columbia' (2003) wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und 2010 verfilmt. Er ist Autor von politischen Biografien über Stipe Mesic und Ante Gotovina. 'Ich träumte von Elefanten' ist sein zweiter Roman. Djikic lebt in Zagreb und Rijeka
