Once again the victim, his thirteenth, was a women. Lanz has been tracking the murderer for years, but his legwork has been in vain so far. Lanz leaves for England immediately and it seems as though this time he is successful. During a hunt over the roofs of London, the suspect dies. The case seems to be closed.
