Nicolette is brutally beaten by her boyfriend Oliver. When she apparently dies a little later from the consequences of her injuries, Oliver Beck and their child have disappeared without a trace. Bella Block investigates with her colleagues in all directions. There she also meets the neighbor Leonie, who wants to become a police officer.
She later meets a journalist who was secretly in love with Nicolette. He initiated the misunderstanding that led to the argument in order to get Nicolette for himself. Since Nicolette couldn't understand what he was doing and started screaming, he smothered her with his T-shirt.
In a subplot, Block is stabbed to death after a lawsuit and briefly loses her language skills. In addition, her long-time friend Simon Abendroth separates from her.
For the lexicon of international films , The Commissioner's Silence was "an ambitious (TV series) crime thriller in which the Commissioner is charged with many private parcels, so that the criminal cases take a back seat."
The critics of the television magazine TV Spielfilm gave the best possible rating (thumbs up) and found: "The crime thriller is only slowly gaining momentum, but the actors are convincing" and came up with the conclusion: "Unspectacular, but strongly played case".
