It turns out journalist Jean Louis was working on a book about Loukauskis and his criminal business and interviewed the murdered prostitutes. They testifi ed against Loukauskis – perhaps the reason why they were killed and Jean Louis was tortured. All of his material is stored on a password-protected web server, but Jean Louis himself is not cooperating with the police. And strangely, information about the old case six years ago got "lost" in the Belgian police department. When Alicia's superior, investigative judge Stéphane Pernel surprisingly attempts suicide, the investigation is knocked back to square one – the only lead now is Theo Janke, the pimp of jazz singer Iris Gabler's daughter Maria. Evidence shows that he must have been the one who killed Maria. But Janke is gone and when the team finally finds him, they find a mess.
