Scene of the Crime - Wiped Out
Tatort - Ausgelöscht
A naked man is found in a car park - lying in a shopping trolley with bullet holes in his knees and temple. It transpires that the victim is Bulgarian,and was involved in a break-in at a jeweller's shop. Is the murder part of a gang war? After contact is made with the Bulgarian authorities, a Bulgarian special investigator, Donka Galabova, travels to Vienna. Then a very similar burglary takes place in a car showroom. The crimes always follow the same pattern. It seems as if the perpetrators come to Vienna for the night of the crime and then disappear again afterwards. Who is the Austrian middleman, who selects the targets for break-in, and who disposes of the goods afterwards?
During their investigations, police inspector Eisner and his assistant, Bibi, repeatedly come up against a lawyer who represents the victims, and also against a probable fence who seems to be implicated in the case. As a second body, also found naked in a shopping trolley, is discovered, this time shot by a Bulgarian weapon, it becomes clear that a Bulgarian killer must be present in the city. Can the Austrian special investigation team and their Bulgarian colleague solve the case?
