– Foreign Crime Drama
When the first female body is found, propped up like a hunting trophy, the police fear yet another serial killer in the border region between Germany and Austria. Meanwhile, our Austro-German investigator duo is unfit for duty: Ellie is struggling in the face of trauma, and the attempt on Gedeon’s life forces his early retirement. A new junior officer, Yela Antic, is on the case, but she isn’t able to complete it alone. As Ellie and Gedeon are forced to team up alongside Yela on this deeply unique investigation, they begin to see each other in a way neither could have imagined: as potential adversaries.
