A year ago, millionaire factory owner Lohmann died in a car accident. Numerous clues point to murder. The siblings of the victim suspect Lohmann’s wife Gerda and her young lover – believing she incited him to kill. When the police reach a deadlock in their investigation, Lohmann’s siblings hire private detective Nelly. But the ice-cold alleged murderer, Jansen, ensnares Nelly as well with his Playboy charm. In this ambitious crime thriller, director Dominik Graf offers a variation on an age-old theme: The investi- gator falls in love with the murder suspect.
