Star tenor Lorenz Ammersfeld makes a guest appearance at the Munich State Opera and receives a surprise visit from the LKA after his acclaimed performance. The lead investigator Sandra Rutkowski has received a tip and finds an underage boy in the artist’s dressing room who does not speak German, half-naked and scared. The singer is temporarily arrested. But when Rutkowski accompanies him to the car in front of the opera, shots are fired. The tenor is killed instantly. Still at the scene, Inspector Lukas Laim and Anton Simhandl are put in the picture by their LKA colleague: It is clear to her that Lorenz Ammersfeld was silenced by the person who had fed him the boy. Laim is not very impressed by this. His research reveals that the Romanian boy disappeared days ago from a reception facility for unaccompanied refugee children. The trail leads to a security company with contacts in the red-light district and to a second corpse.
