Blums chases Sebastian Hackspiel and ends up being admitted to the hospital. Massimo is harassed by Ute for showing interest in Blum, and she eventually dumps him.

Reza just so happens to examine the video on Hackspiel’s pen drive, and he learns that a fifth person was also responsible for all the atrocities.

Reza steps in to save Blum when Massimo was going to set Blum and the other women in the building on fire. Blum murders Massimo by repeatedly stabbing him while he aims a pistol at Reza.
Woman of the Dead ending explained in detail:
What does the mark on the men’s bodies signify?
Blum is intrigued when she sees a mark on both Father Jaunig’s and Edwin’s bodies. She questions Dunja about it but she won’t say anything and tells Blum to avoid the perilous gang.
Blum later kills Edwin and Father Jaugin after she asks them to confess how they killed the girl and her husband.
She happens to view a photo of an old boys’ group during Father Jaugin’s burial and learns that the mark is a boy’s scout group’s logo.
After she finds the same mark on Puch’s leg, she remembers the old picture of four boys – Edwin, Father Jaugin, Puch, and an unknown man – who are involved in all the crimes.
When Blum learns that Dr. Ludwig was the fourth man, she murders him there.
Blum ultimately learns that Massimo was a fifth person who was also complicit in the atrocities after enduring great physical and mental suffering.
Later, Blum stabs Massimo to death after she escapes from the place where she was tied with other women.

When Blum and Reza bring Puch’s body to the funeral home, Blum tells Reza everything.
How does Blum find out about Hackspiel?

Additionally, Thiele disclosed that Greda, his daughter who passed away at the age of 15, had last been seen with Hackspiel. Blum becomes more curious as a result, and she starts looking for information on Hackspiel right away.
She speculated that Hackspiel may be the fourth unidentified figure in the group. As she chases Hackspiel’s car, she realizes that he was not the last person she was attempting to get hold of.
Blum is informed by Hackspiel that he was not a member of any group and that Mrs. Shornburn, who hired him, had ordered him to follow Blum.
To examine the mark on his body, she has him take off his clothes. Hackspiel drives her to the hospital when she faints after she was unable to detect any mark on his body.
Later when she meets Hackspiel she thanks him for saving her life. He admits that while he had done horrible things for Shornborns, he was not responsible for Greda Thiele’s disappearance.
How does Blum become a suspect in the murders?

He takes Blum to the Police station for questioning which ends up with Blum getting off the hook of his doubts.

When Blum discovers the identical boy scout mark on Massimo’s body, she realizes that he was also one of the killers.
Massimo explains that the reason he ran over Mark and killed him was that his group felt threatened by Mark’s leading investigations. Blum is shocked to learn that Massimo also killed Dunja.
