THE GOOD COP
A little paper umbrella, the kind used to decorate ice cream sundaes, has attracted the attention of Fredo Schulz (Armin Rohde) when chief inspectors Milan Filipovic (Edin Hasanovic) and Lola Karras (Nele Kiper) come looking for him on the North Sea. Ashley Bols (Amala Fischer), a seven-year-old girl, has disappeared. She's the third girl already. Schulz couldn't save the last two. They haven't been found yet, but Schulz just knows they're dead. He is sure he knows who the culprit is, though: Roland Bischoff (Axel Prahl).
