Three prostitutes are found dead, one in Antwerp, one in Berlin and one in Copenhagen, and each has been shot through the left eye. Europol sets up a Joint Investigation Team to tackle the case.
The team's main suspect turns out to be a victim and ruthless Lithuanian billionaire Marius Loukauskis is now in their crosshairs instead. But are all of the clues fitting together a little too well?
Journalist Jean-Louis isn't willing to cooperate with the police. A suicide attempt by a judge knocks the investigation back to square one. Maria's pimp Theo, the only remaining lead, goes missing.
The net tightens around Loukauskis when the team trace two murders back to his personal security chief. Harald makes contact with an undercover agent working inside the billionaire's organisation.
Harald and Alicia come to Berlin to investigate the attack on Jackie, but there are no leads until Natascha follows up on a hunch. A side of his business that Loukauskis keeps hidden comes to light.
A recording is found of Maria during her last phone call home that proves significant to the case. Evidence against Loukauskis mounts on a shocking scale when the team access Jean-Louis' computer.
Jean-Louis attempts to get a confession out of Loukauskis, but the billionaire has his own reasons for being interviewed. As Jackie and Harald try to find Loukauskis, Alicia faces her own nightmare.
The more the team learn about Loukauskis, the more shocking his evil business empire is revealed to be. Finally, their search for him leads to an abandoned factory in the Belgian countryside.
