The new episode of Nachschicht is a film noir of the finest kind and at the same time an ironic refraction. Johnny de Groot is head of a furniture store and a regular customer at a brothel in St. Pauli. One night, he collapses under prostitute Zora. Just as pimps Angelo (Frederick Lau) and Claude (Murathan Muslu) are about to get rid of the body discreetly, so as not to ruin the establishment’s reputation, they are disturbed by an unexpected visit from Inspector Erichsen (Armin Rohde) and his assistant Elias (Tedros Teclebrhan). The pimps manage to park the body unobtrusively at the bar – but when Johnny’s wife (Natalie Wörner) reports her husband missing the following night, it dawns on Erichsenn that that must have been the “drunk” at the bar.
