After much deliberation, Carl Sievers has decided to rent a small house on Sylt. But shortly before the keys are handed over, his new landlord, of all people, is murdered.
The dead man is pilot Jens Hansen, who runs an airline on Sylt. At first, everything looks like an ordinary robbery-murder. But it soon becomes apparent that Hansen’s middle-class life had its flaws. Not only did he have a secret lover, but shortly before his death he also had a heated argument with his brother Heiner over, of all things, the family home, which Sievers has since moved into.
Sievers’ new neighbor, the cranky widower Peer Wilders, is another suspect who appears on the scene. His wife had died in an air accident, for which Jens Hansen is supposed to be responsible. Sievers, Ina Behrendsen and Hinnerk Feldmann find out that Hansen has withdrawn a large sum from his bank account every month since the tragic accident. Hush money because he was unable to fly on said flight? Was the grieving Wilders now taking revenge a year later because Hansen had gotten away without punishment? The trail of the money eventually leads the three commissioners to Denmark.
