The Professor. The Oilfield Mystery (Professor Kramer and the Mystery of the Russian Blood)
Die Professorin. Tatort Ölfeld
Adelgunde, Contemporary History professor at the University of Vienna, is a passionate academic and aims to launch a new Institute of European Social History. The young Russian Historian Jekatarina comes to Vienna to study- or so it seems. She wants to write her doctoral thesis on the reconstruction in the Russian occupation zones and Adelgunde is her supervisor. But Jekatarina has other motives to get to know Adelgunde. Adelgund's father worked in oil fields in Lower Austria during the Russian occupation. One day, he was taken prisoner in Siberia under suspicion of sabotage, and his family was only informed of his death years later. What Adelgunde, her mother and younger sister Heidrun aren't aware of, is that he founded a new family in the camp. She claims to be Adelgunde's missing father's grandchild. When both women start to dig into their family history, which is linked to a current murder case, their personal and political differences become flagrant. And a long buried family secret comes to light.
