Claus Brinkstedt (Dietmar Schönherr), former eventing champion, pays his friend and lawyer Renz (Günter Strack) a visit telling him he wants representation as he wants to be divorced from his wife, Angela (Kerstin Löhde), something she doesn't know about yet, and only learns when Renz tells her - as a friend, not lawyer. A few days later, Brinkstedt falls off his horse to his death at a mock fox hunt where rich people pay to chase the former champion in the role of the fox.

Brinkstedt's life was insured for a healthy sum of money, and of course the insurance company doesn't want to pay, so the company's boss Rasch (Joachim Wichmann) hires private detective Matula (Claus Theo Gärtner) to find evidence that Brinkstedt actually committed suicide, in which case the company wouldn't have to pay up. Matula doesn't like the assignment but needs the money, so he starts to investigate and eventually finds out Brinkstedt wanted to move to Spain and become a stunt rider. And from a Romanian stunt man (Albert Kitzl) Brinkstedt has trained with Matula also finds out about an electronic device that makes horses fall at exactly the right moment. Matula examines the horse's headgear and indeed finds such an electronic device.

Renz accompanies Angela to Rasch to insist his company pays out the insurance, but then Matula, Renz's new friend from episode 1, shows up with the headgear, that doesn't so much suggest suicide - but murder. And pretty much giving her game away, Angela is quick to drop her claim for the insurance money ...

 

Quite simply not one of the better episodes of the series as for one the mystery is just very far fetched and the big reveal at the end doesn't seem to have any major consequences, while the whole thing at inappopriate times leans a little too much towards comedy - which is not that surprising as director Reinhard Schwabenitzky is more at home in comedy than thriller. Now weirdly enough, out of nostalgia above are the exact reasons this episode is rather endearing, it's just objectively not very good, and frankly it's also rather free of tension and suspense.
