Das Konzerthaus

Nora Kardinal's investigation into the case of a missing prostitute leads her to the site where the disfigured body was found and thus into a dirty web of greed and power. At the center of this is the awarding of the "Elbphilharmonie" construction project. Are the bestial murders connected with the parliamentary investigations, before whose committee architect Berend and his opponent Melzer have to answer?
During the investigation, Nora unexpectedly meets her sister Lotta, who seems to be hiding a dark secret from her. This uncertainty complicates the investigation and troubles her. Concerned, she asks herself: Why did the luxury mistress have to die, and what role does Nora's sister play in this game?
