Dr. Mabuse is locked inside a room of a German mental institution. He writes all day notes that Dr. Baum reads carefully. The evil doctor manages to hypnotize Baum and to make him execute his schemes. Mabuse's intentions are to destabilize Germany by sabotaging industrial plants, committing audacious robberies or mass-producing fake banknotes.

Detective Lohmann tries to understand who's responsible for these actions but Mabuse/Baum eliminates quickly those who constitute a danger for the organization he has created.
