Murder and death - the 3 from the "gas pump"

The small Lower Bavarian village of Cologne attracts worldwide attention with its annual carnival plagiarism. The centre of the village is the pub "Zur Zapfsäule" / "To gas pump", a place known far beyond the city walls that belongs to the grim Heimgard Zapf. One day, Zapf dies unexpectedly and violently in the regulars' room.

The Cologne police investigators are completely in the dark and call in the special task force "guests" together. You will take over the investigation work: examining evidence and questioning suspects.

Make sure that the killer is behind bars and the end!

Kriminal-Dinner SOKO Semmelknödel

The Moridity of Murder

The well-known Italian football coach Toni Trapper is brought from the English Premier League to Cologne in Lower Bavaria. With the support of the rich host and functionary of the Hansa Bavaria Cologne in Bavaria e.V., Heini Herold Zapf, the small village club is about to move up to the 3rd league. Toni Trapper suddenly dies of an unexpected death just one day before the crucial game.

He is lured into an abandoned ruin and falls in the fog in a deep hole, which is lined with steel tips. The police are sure: "That must have been murder." Through this unexpected stroke of fate, the club missed the already believed safe ascent.

Was it jealousy? Greed? Envy? Revenge? Puzzle with your table neighbors and find out.
