Wiesbaden. La polizia criminale è in allarme per una serie di delitti misteriosi che hanno come punto in comune l'albergo Luxor. L'opinione pubblica vede negli avvenimenti la mano dello scomparso dottor Mabuse. Il commissario Kras indaga sullo strano omicidio, avvenuto con un ago di acciaio, del telecronista Barter (fatto denunciato dal cieco chiaroveggente Cornelius) e, durante l'inchiesta, scopre che il defunto aveva appena lasciato l'appartamento occupato al Luxor da Marion Menil, che tenta il suicidio lanciandosi dal cornicione dell'albergo, ma viene tratta in salvo dal suo vicino di camera, il miliardario Americano Travers. In seguito il poliziotto invita alcune persone, tra cui Marion, Cornelius e l'assicuratore Mistelweig, a chiamarlo al telefono ad una certa ora; ma il telefono esplode ed uccide un agente. Alla fine, dopo altre efferati omicidi, il commissario riesce a far luce sull'intricata vicenda, che si conclude con la morte del colpevole, il figlio del dr. Mabuse.
