The Persian poet, Dutch art detective — and Iranian agents

The gold-leafed volume, worth about €1m ($1.1m), was found missing from the collection of an Iranian antiques dealer after his death in Germany in 2007. It sparked a decade-long search for one of the oldest surviving copies of the Divan of Hafez — the collected works of the poet who remains extremely popular in Iran and has inspired artists worldwide.
