Am Tatort trifft Kommissar Rath auf seinen früheren Kollegen Reinhold Gräf, der nun für die Geheime Staatspolizei arbeitet. Während Gräf von einem politischen Mord ausgeht, ermittelt Rath in eine andere Richtung und entdeckt Verbindungen zum zerschlagenen Ringverein »Nordpiraten«, der seine kriminellen Aktivitäten als SA-Sturm getarnt fortsetzt. Als ein zweiter SA-Mann erschlagen aufgefunden wird, scheint alles auf eine Mordserie zu deuten. Eine Spur führt in den seit Kurzem geschlossenen Lunapark, einstmals Berlins berühmtester Rummel. Und Rath fragt sich, welche Rolle Unterweltboss Johann Marlow, ein Erzfeind der »Nordpiraten«, in diesem Fall spielt.
