Horror on a Hamburg estate: the deeds of a sadistic brute. The true story behind the so-called »acid barrel murders«. In the 1980s and 90s, women in Hamburg lived in fear of Raik Doormann (Oliver Masucci). The sado-masochistic fur dealer kidnapped, tortured and killed in his own nuclear bunker. The first person to find evidence of his butchery is former victim counsellor and later homicide detective Nela Langenbeck (Angelina Häntsch). But at that time women were employed by the police more as secretaries than detectives. Nela has a very hard time getting her work taken seriously. Despite all the resistance, she does finally find a trail that leads to Doormann and his appalling deeds. A superb cast and a brilliantly produced and convincingly reconstructed high-end series.


FLORIAN SCHWARZ (*1974 in Koblenz). After studying at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg, several awards, numerous TV films including Tatort – Weil sie böse sind (2010) and the Ulrich Tukur Tatort – In dem Schmerz geboren (2014).
