In the Shadow of Fear
Im Schatten der Angst
Karla Eckhardt is a forensic psychiatrist who serves as an expert witness in criminal proceedings. She must assess whether the defendant, Carsten Spanger, is criminally liable. The famous architect has kidnapped a young woman. Karla diagnoses him as suffering from a serious personality disorder, and soon begins to suspect that she is dealing with a serial killer. As suspicion grows that a further victim may still be alive in some hideaway, she needs to gain Spanger's trust. But Spanger forces Karla to face her own demons.
