Inspired by a true crime case, the fictional six-part series German Crime Story: Tied Up follows the story of one of Germany’s most notorious serial killers, the so-called “acid barrel killer”. Raik Doormann terrified the Hamburg area in the early 1980s and 1990s because he kidnapped, tortured and brutally killed women in his own nuclear bunker. Only the victim counselor and later homicide detective Nela Langenbeck finds clues to his actions. But at that time, women within the police department were seen more as secretaries than investigators – so their approaches initially shook their heads. Despite all resistance, she finally gets on the track of Doormann and his cruel deeds.
