He is only too happy to escape the chaos as a straw widower and rushes to his colleague Mustafa in the hospital. The young student Dilek awaits him there, accusing her ex-boyfriend Birol Baslan of raping her. In the alleged perpetrator's apartment, Özakin and his colleague find clear traces of a night of partying. Birol Baslan lies dead in his bed, covered with stab wounds and with dark strangle marks on his neck. Did Dilek kill him? Or was it Birol's new friend Djamila, who works as a dancer in the glamorous "Club Royal"? After all, he had invited Dilek, not her, to his luxurious apartment. The lavish lifestyle of the murdered puzzles the police: "Club Royal" operator Erkan Baschtir claims that his friend Birol kept himself afloat with odd jobs and otherwise lived at his own expense. It was rather by chance that Mehmet Özakin discovered that Birol was increasing his budget with the occasional drug deal and was just about to get into the lucrative business. Baschtir should provide the necessary start-up capital. Meanwhile, Özakin's investigations focus on Dilek. She knows more than she admits, and the Commissioner is sure that she also knows where the money that was meant for the cocaine, which has since disappeared, is. When the DNA of Dilek's friend Salih is found on the dead man's neck, things seem clear. But the new suspect is exonerated by Djamila, of all people, who Bashtir claims to have seen in front of Birol's house on the night of the crime. The discovery of the murder weapon in the kitchen of Baschtir's "Club Royal" strengthens the suspicion that Baschtir murdered his alleged friend. For his shrewd lawyer, however, it is an easy game to take the police off guard and keep the influential night club boss from the cell. As soon as he is free again, events roll over. Suddenly Dilek is in great danger. Written by ARD Das Erste See less
