On her way to meeting Iris Gabler, Jackie gets attacked and shot by a masked man. She is badly wounded but can survive in hospital in Berlin. Harald and Alicia come to Berlin, but all they find is closed doors. No indication of the shooter, no trace whatsoever, even nothing leading to Loukauskis or his entourage. Until, for the first time, a carefully hidden side of Loukauskis' business comes to light when the source of a spreading salmonella scandal in Denmark is detected: A chicken farm in a deserted area in the Danish countryside where illegal immigrants from Eastern Europe are forced to work under inhuman conditions. Finally something to build up a case! The Danish police is about to make a raid, but somebody was faster destroying evidence in a most shocking way.
When the Danish police arrive at the illegal chicken farm, the building is burning brightly. Many of the forced laborers who were locked up there died in the flames. Survivors leave no doubt: this was modern slavery at its worst. But most evidence is lost in the flames so the only key to nailing Loukauskis is buried in Jean Louis' material. But Jean Louis seems to have lost his mind suffering from post-traumatic stress after having been tortured. Everything Alicia can get out of him is a love poem he recites. A sign? A key? A hidden message? Or just nonsense? When the team gets hold of the phone conversation between prostitute Maria and her mother Iris Gabler that Jackie was about to confront the jazz singer with, the missing connection between the killed prostitutes, Loukauskis' "business" and the murder attempt on Jackie comes to light. Finally, they have something in their hands to go after Loukauskis. But when they fi nally get access to Jean Louis' material on Loukauskis, the shocking news is that they just scratched on the tip of the iceberg.
Loukauskis slipped away. But at least the team can put an international arrest warrant on him as they found evidence that he raped Maria, Iris Gabler's daughter, when she was 14. Meanwhile, it proves that Jean Louis didn't become insane at all. He is following his own agenda of destroying Loukauskis. In a secret Skype conversation he tries to get confessions out of him, but Loukauskis took precautions so Jean Louis won't get away alive a second time. While Jackie and Harald get a grip on Loukauskis' whereabouts, Alicia is facing a huge private nightmare.
The more the team learns about Loukauskis' methods of putting trafficked people into forced labor, the more it becomes obvious how effective his organization works. He can just disappear in an instant, so again they can't get to him. But the more the police learn about his business, the easier it becomes to cut him off his entourage and narrow down Loukauskis' options of hiding. Until finally, an abandoned factory in the Belgian countryside is left. While Alicia and Harald go to get him, Jackie finds Loukauskis' ex wife Dahlia murdered in her garden. The final act of the divorce from hell? When Jackie fi nds out the truth about Dahlia's death, it all falls into place. Meanwhile, Alicia and Harald arrive at the Belgian factory and face a human catastrophe as the factory obviously was full of mistreated female slaves sewing fake brand clothes for the black market. No sign of Loukauskis whatsoever. If they want to nail him before he leaves the continent, they've got only one shot left.
