Film Website

Cowboys in Upper Franconia, a nocturnal horseman in front of the cathedral, a mysterious book-dealer and a dead female student. And this was supposed to be a peaceful homecoming? After his mother's death, Inspector Peter Haller returns to Bamberg to settle her estate. But on his first day home he gets a call from his ambitious partner in Würzburg, Birgit Sacher. A young policeman from Bamberg, Sven Schäuffele, joins them. The death of the young rider leads the investigators to a nearby dude ranch catering to fans of the “Old West”. It is run by Tessie Breu and her husband, Stefan. The student was killed after an accident in the forest in which she was skewered by a plow hidden under the grass. A mysterious horseman apparently watched her bleed to death. But just who could this Bamberg horseman be..?
