Urs Jaeger lives dangerously: he’s in possession of a list of prominent Germans who have smuggled money onto Swiss bank accounts. A chaotic pair of crooks try to steal the list so as to blackmail the people on it, which supposedly include members of the government. For this reason, the inland security service gets involved. Jaeger asks private detective Finn Zehender (Hinnerk Schönemann) to protect his children Moritz and Mathilda, as they also have access to the list. The crooks know this and a mad chase begins. The third film in the North German village thriller series with its congenial main character is a mix of absurd comic-like scenes and virtuoso action sequences.
