    STORY LINE (in english):
    The body of a woman from Hamburg is found on the banks of the Danube' river 'in Vienna.  It quickly turns out that it is Ms. Tüllmann, who was in Vienna with her husband, a major industrialist and former Hamburg Senator.

    First of all, the chief inspector Marek, who is in charge of the case, interrogates her husband, who testifies that there were no problems in the marriage.  However, the porter of the hotel where the couple stayed in Vienna stated that there had been a
    dispute about another lady, Miriam Reinhold, also from Hamburg, who stayed in the same hotel.  The customs officer at the airport who had cleared the couple also noticed a quarrel' 'both of them were having.  Tüllmann was amazed at an' extra 'red
    suitcase that his wife had with her.'  'They had only left Hamburg with four suitcases.

    Meanwhile, Harald Tüllmann testifies to Commissioner Marek that he and his wife were together in the Prater and that after they had stopped at the so-called "Wurstlbrater" it happened that his wife suddenly disappeared and he had not found her'.  That
    was around 9 p.m.  He then returned to the hotel alone and fell asleep and, after waking up and his wife still not returned, he alerted the police.  However, the hotel porter says that Ms. Tüllmann returned between 9:00 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. and left the
    hotel shortly afterwards with a shabby red suitcase.  As' 'further investigation turns out, Harald Tüllmann has a relationship with the singer Miriam Reinhold.  Marek observes an unequivocal hug between the two in the hotel room, which contributes to'
    suspicion of 'the industrialist' Tüllmann.'

    Meanwhile, chief detective Trimmel is traveling from Hamburg to pick up a prisoner in Vienna and uses the opportunity to inquire about the case of the dead woman from Hamburg.  Trimmel knows' to 'report that Tüllmann was blackmailed.  His wife was
    morbidly jealous.  Since Tüllmann actually cheated on her, he could be blackmailed to that extent.  Tüllmann admits that Marek had been blackmailed, but initially passed it on to his lover at the time, his maid, and said that he did not know who was
    behind the blackmail.  He points out that his marriage was hell.  He also states that he got drunk and that the compromising photos of him and the girl were then taken.  Opposite Marek he expresses the assumption that his wife was the mastermind
    behind the action.  During a quarrel in the Prater, she hinted that she had teamed up with the underworld to harm him, whereupon he told her to her face that he had never loved her.

    Trimmel, who recognizes the pimp Zens, who killed a policeman in Hamburg, in a small coffee house, is beaten up by him and his cronies.  Zens is a recognized figure in Vienna's red light district.  A witness' by the name of
    'Wybiral, testifies that Zens wanted to kill him because he knew too much about him and that Zens was Tüllmann's blackmailer.  Zens is shot while trying to escape when the police try to arrest him. Before his death he admits that he is actually the
    murderer of the policeman and Mrs. Tüllmann.  Since he saw a policeman at Hamburg Airport and felt he was being followed, he handed over his red suitcase with his machine gun to Ms. Tüllmann, whom he had seen by chance at the airport and whom he had
    known through attempts to blackmail her husband.  Mrs. Tüllmann then smuggled the suitcase to Vienna and returned it to him, there.  Since he did not' return to 'her the promised photo with which he had tried to blackmail Tüllmann as agreed to, the
    woman became hysterical, whereupon he tried to' quiet her with' force. 'Then, he threw her into the water. '
