    interior, she wants to flee the island. She is intercepted by them at the train station and pressured to continue to participate. When Mr. Warrlau and Christa are having fun in the dunes, the Posskys appear and beat him up. Christa flees in fear. But
    they are seen by a couple of hikers fleeing.Inspector Finke and his assistant Jessner (disguised as a building contractor with son) are sent to Sylt to investigate the blackmail. Warrlau is silent and dismisses the incident as an accident so as not to
    endanger his career. However, thanks to the hiking couple, Finke' quickly locates and interrogates 'the brothers.

    They however, are clueless, although the police have noticed them negatively many times in the past.Manuela also no longer wants to play the brothers' game and with the doctor Dr. Rudolph Kühne' wants to 'start a new life. Her sister Brigitte in Lü
    beck, is terminally ill and is being treated by Kühne. When Christa' 'washed up dead on the beach the next morning after going to the disco, the Posskys ask about her and' come 'under suspicion of murder.' 'For this, Finke sends Jessner to Frankfurt to
    one of the blackmail victims , from whom he believes he will now get an honest testimony. Jessner gets help from inspector Konrad, but his interrogation turns into an embarrassing debacle and does not bring any result.

    When 'Manuela's body' also washes 'ashore a little later, the case seems almost clear. For Finke, the Posskys are suspected of having murdered their apostate girls. When a young couple testifies that they saw the beach attendant Hannes with a sack on

    have been murdered by the Posskys and questions Kühne again in his house in the presence of Brigitte. He discovers that the two sleep in one bed and not separately. Brigitte panics and locks herself in the bedroom. But, suddenly she steps out again
    as Manuela.Dr. Kühne tells of Brigitte's suffering and that Manuela faked her death to escape the Posskys. But, she has no idea that Dr. Kühne helped with Brigitte's death in order to quickly solve her problem with the help of Hannes.
