The body of 19-year-old Lara Krohn is fished out of a canal. She was addicted to drugs and financed her addiction on the streets. The Cologne commissioners Max Ballauf (Klaus J. Behrendt) and Freddy Schenk (Dietmar Bär) suspect the perpetrator among their suitors. In fact, three traces of foreign DNA were found on the dead woman. One of them points to the laboratory assistant Natalie Förster (Tinka Fürst). Did the young woman contaminate the tracks - or is there more to it? In fact, Natalie is acting strange and researching on her own.
At the beginning, the focus is on two young women who are looking for brief moments of happiness between drug addiction and prostitution. But in the course of this "crime scene" episode, another young woman comes to the fore who is looking for her biological father. There are touching stories that are interwoven with the crime story by the screenwriters Jan Martin Scharf and Arne Nolting. They have already proven in the past that they can credibly tell stories from the perspective of young people: Among other things, Scharf and Nolting wrote the screenplay for the German series adaptation "Red Ribbon Club".
The cast is also outstanding: with Josef Harder and Robert Stadlober, two top-class stars could be won for supporting roles.
While Freddy Schenk is clearly concerned about the brutal murder of a 19-year-old girl, Max Ballauf's rough manner causes discord with the young laboratory assistant Natalie. However, this turns out to be the key to solving the case.
This case from Cologne is surprisingly complex. Turn on.
Inspectors Ballauf and Schenk also investigated these cases:
