A nerve-bending murder twist
Allan Berg is sleeping with his new wife's daughter. The daughter threatens to tell the mother, so he kills her. Hans Thomsen, who works in a mortuary, figures the motive out - as he is examining the daughters corpse for possible jewelery or other values he can steel. He starts to blackmail Allan Berg. But Berg is determined to hold on to his rich wife and therefore a deadly game of mouse and cat sets off. A great thrill and a very exciting and realistic plot with the good old message, that greed never leads to anything good.
