Early one morning a woman's body is found near a discotheque. Not until the detectives from the Leipzig Homicide Division look more closely do they realise it is actually a young man. Niko Blume is still wearing the woman's clothes he was dressed in the previous night, when he was out trawling through the Leipzig gay scene.
Our investigators quickly turn their attention to a conflict that has been brewing for some time, between Turkish youths and homosexuals in Leipzig. At first it looks as though Blume‘s death will lead to a fatal escalation of this conflict - but before long the case proves to be far more complex. And now the finger of suspicion is pointed at two individuals from the gay scene: Blume’s ex-boyfriend, Ronny Münzer, and another young man he met in the disco shortly before his death.
As if the case were not explosive enough, due to the huge media interest it has aroused, now open warfare really does seem likely when the Turkish boyfriend of Patrick’s sister is the victim of a revenge attack which apparently originated in the gay scene. Our investigators have to overcome a number of prejudices - some quite personal - before they finally exposed the culprit. But his motive conceals a bitter realisation which makes it impossible for the police officers to take any pleasure in the case they have just solved.
