THE PRODIGY Levin and the musical Wunderkind Kim Soo-Ri are kidnapped outside the Elbphilharmonie concert hall. Kira and Nele search for them in vain, until Nele finds a sweet wrapper. Levin has left a trail!  A paperchase through the harbour begins. Will they find the others?

THE DROP-OUT Lisha and Nele follow a young pickpocket and discover the Moro gang's hangout. Their leader is relentlessly strict, which is why no-one dares to leave. Can the Peppercorns find out the gang's secret?
