During a tour of a well-known museum around the corner, Mark finds more similarities to real corpses in the medieval paintings than the painters could actually know.

Forensic biologist DR. MARK BENECKE devotes himself in a bizarre to sometimes disgusting way to exciting questions that sometimes you would rather not have answered: Why, for example, are the fingernails of the bloated male corpse so long and what kind of maggot crawls out of the corner of its mouth at the same time? Thus, it is not death that is BENECKES job, but life after death. If the maggots expose the killer, he has done everything right... Follow him into a shocking and fascinating world. BENECKES' analysis of various insects found on corpses has helped put a stop to countless criminals around the world. However, the audience's stomach can easily turn at the sight of some of the photos.

Because not the usual pictures are shown, but photographs of strongly disfigured corpses. Only detailed close-ups can clarify the really interesting questions. The Cologne-based criminal biologist was trained by the FBI and operates internationally. BENECKE has set up special laboratories in Colombia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Numerous radio and TV appearances testify to the public's great interest in his work. Here, the public now gets an insight into the work of one of the world's best known and most successful criminal biologists.
