[doorbell buzzes]
Bonjour. I'm Bianca.
I didn't mean to disturb you but
Yeah, yeah, all right.
How do you know where I live?
[scoffs] It's obvious.
You're new around here and a cop as well.
It doesn't matter.
Everyone knows everyone around here.
So may I come in, if you don't mind?
[Capitani sighs]
[door closes]
At the cabaret, everyone's really worried.
Have you got any news?
Er You've managed to trace her?
Is this Andreea?
[breath shudders]
Do you want a coffee?
Oh, some water.
- [cup rattles]
- [tap running]
Do you know what happened?
She was in the forest near the pond.
She'd been stabbed
and left there.
But, I mean, why?
I've no Idea. What about you?
I don't know, er
She disappeared,
and we were worried about her, that's all.
You must have worried about this.
What could she have done to deserve that?
What do you mean, "to deserve that"?
You think this is her fault?
Er, pardon me, that's not what I meant.
No person deserves that.
It was very brutal.
Looked like a crime of passion.
Means the killer
could've been a boyfriend.
How could somebody do that?
It's beyond me.
You mentioned before
working the streets together.
But now you told me about cabaret.
You guys do both, do you?
We try to avoid street work.
But the lockdowns were so hard for us
that now we do anything that we can.
Which cabaret employs you?
Le Carat. With Valentina.
Same owner as the Blue Diamond?
The Blue Diamond? No. No.
And not Gibbes Koenig then,
the, er, king of the night?
Er, I'm not sure about that, I don't know.
[sighs] Send me the photos, please.
I can investigate if you want.
Find out what happened.
Yes, okay.
[mysterious music playing]
[door opens]
[door closes]
[jingle plays on mobile]
[on mobile] You're listening to RTL
with Marie Hoffmann. The latest news.
Good Morning.
According to the opposition,
this current government
is not fit to run the country
following the handling of the economy
since the global pandemic.
[news continues indistinctly]
[keyboard clacking]
JOE MORES: Look what I caught.
[news continues indistinctly]
Hi Luc, I hope you're doing well. Greetings from Manscheid.
- Joe.
Mission Reminder: - Get to know
as many local players as possible.
I want a report about your investigation
regarding the "Blue Diamond".
Suspicious activities
seem to take place in the evenings.
We need intel.
Meet you tomorrow evening, Cousin Paulette
[newsreader] In other news, the police
are calling for witnesses today,
after a woman's body was discovered,
in the train station district of the city
following an anonymous phone call.
The body was found in a car park
near the forest.
Current evidence
points to a brutal murder.
The victim has not yet been identified.
The body lay for at least 24 hours.
The police are asking for anyone
who was in the area between the hours
[man] Looking for Marc Diederich,
Snow White Special Intervention Unit.
Yeah, he's just over there.
- Thanks, man.
- Sure.
Diederich, Special Intervention.
I was told to introduce myself.
Toni Scholtes.
Ah, our customs officer.
[Toni exhales]
I heard you volunteered for this one.
Had enough of the border, eh?
Er, fancied some new scenery.
So this train station mess
is for us to clean up?
We're observing.
The drug trade around here is exploding.
To combat this we need facts and evidence.
What are you doing at
the crime scene of a whore?
This murder is bad news
for the train station's neighbourhood.
It doesn't happen often in this country.
So what was it then? Another sex worker?
[Diederich] Revenge, robbery, killing,
gang war. Nobody knows.
Undoubtedly, it'll take a while
to identify the victim.
You know what?
Why don't you come to the office
and meet your new partner.
You're gonna spend a lot of time together.
Should get to know each other.
[mellow music playing over speakers]
[woman] Tell me about yourself.
What do you do?
[Capitani] I'm an architect.
Really? An architect? Wow.
- [Capitani] Hmm.
- [chuckles]
And what kind of buildings?
[woman laughs] A true Luxembourger.
How perfect.
And? Shouldn't we invest
in another bottle of champagne then?
We could take it upstairs
and be even more comfortable.
Good idea.
Why not bring up one of your friends too?
Two for one? [chuckles]
Who? They're all so wonderful.
Do you also have younger friends?
Younger, you say?
So drinking alcohol-free cocktails,
you mean?
[Capitani] Hmm.
Do you enjoy a cocktail without alcohol?
I could do. And you?
Pure champagne.
Good night Mr Architect.
[mysterious music playing]
[siren wailing distantly]
Bonjour. Can I get you something to drink?
- Two cappuccinos, s'il vous plaît.
- Right.
[mellow music playing over speakers]
What's happened? Tell me, sister.
One of our girls was murdered.
The ex-cop, he found her.
When he discovered her
He showed me photos. They're horrible.
Which girl?
Andreea. The new girl.
The Romanian?
The new Romanian girl?
In the forest.
You mean you've heard?
[sighs] I saw her at the car park.
But when was that?
A few days ago.
I was surprised.
You know the new girls shouldn't be there.
[knock on window]
What the hell was that?
- [sighs]
- Are you seeing each other?
No. Don't be stupid.
Please tell me you wouldn't do that.
You know his reputation.
I'm not a fool.
Exactly when did you see Andreea?
It's nothing to do with me.
- Meaning what exactly?
- [waiter] Here you go.
It should be to do with everyone.
I should have kept schtum.
If there's anything you know,
you better tell this guy.
The one who found her.
Let me give you his number.
[door opens]
[door closes]
[upbeat song playing over speakers]
I have news. Is your mother here?
[Valentina sighs]
That was excellent work.
Thank you, Bianca.
[man] What should we do now?
Capitani's prepared to investigate.
I said yes.
What? Who is this Capitani?
I said Bianca should go meet with
this individual, Capitani,
should it be hard to find Andreea.
You sent Bianca, did you?
I wouldn't stick my own neck out
with a person I haven't met first.
So who is this Capitani though?
[sighs] Merci, Bianca.
Go, if you wouldn't mind.
I can pay Capitani with my own earnings.
The girls will chip in.
No, no.
Andreea was one of ours.
Therefore we do it.
Actually, erm
I have a friend who works for Koenig.
She saw Andreea
the night she was killed at the car park.
What do you mean? She never went there.
Yeah, I already told her that.
[door opens]
- [door closes]
- This should be up to me.
What made you send Bianca
to a stranger without asking first?
Capitani is an ex-policeman.
See to it that I get to meet him.
I'm in favour of lateral recruitment.
Police officer who allegedly killed
a drug dealer in 2005 released from jail.
How am I gonna find him?
If your little girlfriend achieved it,
so can you. Hmm?
- [door opens]
- [Valentina sighs]
[door closes]
What's up?
Bianca told me you'd be able to help,
yeah, concerning, Andreea.
Apparently you saw something.
I don't remember, no.
[vehicle approaching]
- Hi.
- Hi. Not today, mate.
Pick another one. Drive on.
[Grace] Arsehole.
I mean, you would, er,
- tell me personally.
- [sighs] Why would I?
Because it's my business. No?
Er, yeah?
- I can't quite remember.
- [sighs]
That should do it.
- Just nothing.
- Hmm.
- You're sure?
- Well, yeah.
I'm counting on you, Grace.
[Capitani] Thank you.
[suspenseful music playing]
[indistinct chatter]
What the fuck, dude?
- Seriously, man
- Yeah, calm down.
- It's just bones.
- Give me a minute.
- No, no, let him be.
- Here, take your cup.
- Putain.
- Ugh, why give it back to me, man?
What's up? You're Capitani?
Bianca's our mutual friend. I'm Dominik.
Not here.
What do you want then?
You come highly recommended by Bianca.
I'm here to get you working
directly for us.
Directly? Are you Dominik Draga?
As I live and I breathe.
Why would I work for you then?
You're fresh out of prison
You're not drowning in work I imagine.
Okay, you're obviously well informed.
So tell me something about yourself.
Le Carat and the Heaven are ours.
Cabaret and champagne bars.
There's something for everybody.
And how about you come and work there?
[scoffs] Not going to happen.
Can't get involved
with illegal businesses.
Illegal? Define illegal.
- [mobile buzzing]
- Your business model.
There's nothing illegal there.
Our hostesses can sleep with
whoever they want.
And if they get anything in return,
that's only fair.
I would say that depends
on your perspective.
Same as murder?
Why would you say that?
Everyone struggles
at different points in their life.
However, a cop
doesn't stay in prison for long, eh?
You carrying a mic or what?
Only before karaoke.
Maybe just consider giving us a hand
every so often.
[mobile beeps]
[woman moaning in other room]
[line ringing]
[over voicemail] Hi, this is Capitani.
Leave a message and I'll call you back.
[mobile vibrates, rings]
[clears throat]
[mobile beeps]
You're speaking to Pink Panther.
[Lucky over mobile] Grace?
[exhales] Grace, is that you?
I can't believe it.
[Grace] Lucky? Is it you, brother?
Listen. I'm in Europe.
What are you saying?
I I came to bring you home.
Family needs you.
Please don't tell me that.
You don't come here. Never.
You hear me? Never.
Well, I am here, Grace.
Er, Esch.
But why? Why?
You don't know who you are dealing with.
They will force you to sell drugs.
Grace, stop it, huh?
I'm your brother. You do what I say.
- Let's meet tomorrow, and you can
- Don't call me again.
- Grace.
- [call disconnects]
[sighs deeply]
You're back alone then?
- [sighs] Capitani is not interested.
- You made sure to offer him good payment?
I made sure that the job was made clear.
The job? You, who's never managed
to work two days in a row in his life?
- Fucking hilarious.
- An ex-con you attract with money only.
[Dominik sighs]
Make sure this gets to Koenig
at Mont Blanc.
He needs to see this.
[mysterious music playing]
[keyboard clacking]
- Coke?
- Fifty euros.
Fucking disgusting!
What junkie's arse
did you have to pull this from, huh?
And now you can piss off
out of this street! Go away!
Hey! I need to see Gibbes.
Mr Koenig is busy right now.
Make an appointment.
Come on, I just want
to give him this message.
I'll give it to him.
Uh-uh, instead of stopping me,
you should take care of the Africans
in the street that are coming here.
- What? You want a lap dance?
- From you?
That's enough. Fuck off!
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's urgent.
[siren wailing distantly]
- [upbeat music playing]
- [Gibbes] Yes, yes, it's beautiful.
Voilà. The the pole
is like your lover, you see,
and you have to take your, er
What was it you said she needed?
Shit! We're trying to
rehearse here, for God's sake.
- Sorry, boss.
- [music stops]
Get out of here, you moron!
You've ruined everything.
- We'll get back to you.
- [woman] Thank you.
[bouncer] I've a message
from the Draga kid.
"Please forgive me. Valentina." What?
[laptop beeps]
[mysterious music playing]
[Dominik] Our hostesses
can sleep with whoever.
If they get anything, that's only fair.
Yeah, I'm sure they do.
[over recording]
You carrying a mic or what?
[Dominik] Only before karaoke.
[mysterious music continues]
[woman speaking indistinctly]
A lovely white bun and a black coffee.
- Yeah.
- [keyboard clacking]
[doorbell buzzes]
[suspenseful music playing]
[doorbell buzzes]
[knocking at door]
