Storyline

Piggish German actor Henry Hoffman antagonizes everybody on set whilst making a film about Jersey's occupation by the Nazis, a fact which adds to local hostility and to the list of suspects when Hoffman receives death threats. Further complications are provided by the fact that Hoffman's father, a Wehrmacht soldier, was executed by firing squad during the war for raping a woman who is still alive and whose family may be seeking revenge. Thus when Hoffman is blown up at sea Jim is left with no end of potential murderers. Written by don @ minifie-1
