This is an unconvincing police drama about an inspector (Peter Fleischmann, also the director) who loses his grip on the rational world when he becomes emotionally involved with the worse kind of murderess -- a woman who killed her own child. The inspector normally tracks down the motivation for the crimes he must solve, so when the female killer shows no remorse for what she did, he becomes more and more involved in her case -- to the point of almost completely abandoning his wife and family. Eventually, the woman is sent to a mental clinic, while the inspector is determined to get her out, no matter what.
