Murder by the Lake 6
„The Recurrence“

Johannes Leitner (Christian Kuchenbuch) dies by a shot in the head on the isolated gallows island. The bullet, though, had been fired from Hannah Zeiler’s (Nora Waldstätten) gun, who is found unconscious besides the dead body.

Outside of her working hours she followed the victim, whom she suspected to know something about her father’s destiny, to this place and was brutally knocked out. While Oberländer (Matthias Koeberlin) presumes murder, Hannah’s former mentor Ernst Gschwendner (August Schmölzer) thinks a suicide would be more likely. In the course of the investigation a shocking assumption arises: Can it be, that Hannah Zeiler’s father is still alive?

The relationship between the two detectives is put at a tough test in their sixth case and in the end Oberländer will have to make a momentous decision that will change Hannah’s life forever.
