MURDER BY THE LAKE- 16 "THE NIGHT DEMON"

The collaboration between Chief Inspector Micha Oberländer (Matthias Koeberlin) from Lindau and his colleague Luisa Hoffmann (Alina Fritsch) from Bregenz are put to the test. When Oberländer, plagued by headaches, nightmares and memory lapses, arrives at the crime scene on a lonely country road in the morning, he fails to tell colleagues Komlatschek (Hary Prinz) and Hoffmann that he has a vague memory of the victim. The man, Jonas Merlau (Yasmani Stambader), was run over. Missing skid marks indicate the intent to kill. The victim and his girlfriend Aisha (Cansu Tosun) had come to Lake Constance to buy a sailboat. On the night of the murder, the sale was supposed to take place in a restaurant, but the seller did not show up. Oberländer remembers being at the same restaurant that night as well, but his memory lapses give him further puzzles until he thinks of a terrible suspicion...
