Just before dirndl designer Zenzi Schlickenrieder’s big fashion show she is found stabbed to death in her boutique. Officers Danner and Hartl start to investigate.
Ursel Jung, the murdered woman’s long-term girlfriend, draws initial suspicion. As it turns out, the deceased was having a secret affair with Barbara Sandner, a successful model. Had Jung gotten wind of their relationship and proceeded to stab her girlfriend?
Or is Barbara Sandner the murderer? The detectives know that Sandner wanted to end her fling with the victim, but she threatened to go public with photos of the two of them. Did Sandner murder Zenzi Schlickenrieder before she could do that?
Throughout it all Leonardo Ganzoli gradually becomes a focus of the investigation. The dirndl designer’s assistant has a criminal record. The investigators can imagine Ganzoli having murdered his boss after she learned of his jail stay. A thrilling case for Hartl and for Danner, whose transfer request to Aschaffenburg is finally approved.
