This taut, well-wrought German drama was originally made for television in 1995 but was such a critical success that it was released in theaters the following year. It is the gripping story of a young journalist who begins reporting on a series of prostitute murders. Ina Littmann's prime suspect is author Henry Kupfer who was recently released from prison after allegedly murdering a string of hookers. His newest book is on that subject. As her suspicions mount, Ina begins gathering evidence but she does not learn the truth until she interviews Kupfer live on television.
