Scene of the Crime - Code Name "Kidon"
Tatort - Deckname "Kidon"
A guest falls onto the roof of a taxi from the top floor of a hotel near Vienna's Opera House. He is dead. But is it suicide or murder? The dead man is Dr. Bansari, an Iranian diplomat and nuclear physicist. The Iranian Embassy and Austrian Foreign Ministry immediately weigh in. Both try to keep the case strictly under wraps, but the investigating team of Moritz Eisner and Bibi Fellner will not be deterred from pressing ahead with their enquiries. In the process they stumble across business dealings that a lobbyist is pursuing for a high-tech company. This company manufactures pumps and valves that could possibly be used in atomic reactors. A major deal has just been closed and the goods are thought to be making their way to Iran via third countries. This, at least, is the possible assumption of the Israeli secret services, who are suspected of having a hand in the death of Dr. Bansari and of sending an assassination squad.
