Storyline

A series of crimes is the main plot of this successful soap opera. In the first episode, Paulo Soares dies in a car accident. Following that murder, the lawyer Hélio Ribeiro gets killed. He was the father of Irene, that after this she still suffers with the death of her aunt, Júlia Braga. With the death of the millionaire Francesca Ferreto, the young Irene realizes that the crimes have a connection and she decides to investigate them by herself. The rest of series is based on personal problems between the characters, and including more crimes. In all of the crimes, there's a common fact: all victims receive a list of the Chinese horoscope before they die. The suspense is not only in finding out who the murderer is, but to discover who will be the next victim. Written by Ikescs

A show that stopped the country
25 January 2002 | by gbchSee all my reviews

"Who will be the next victim?" I watched this and I can say without doubts that it was the best soap opera made in Brazil. There was a serial killer in Sao Paulo who killed people with some type of linkage following a misterious "chinese horoscope list" - everything around an italian community. All the characters were suspects and Brazil stopped at the final chapter to see the truth: who was killing, and why. The dialogs were very exciting and the story was full of mistery, suspense, surprises and also comedy - from the beginning to the end. The cast was perfect: Claudia Ohana (Isabela Ferreto), Suzana Vieira (Ana Carvalho), Aracy Balabanian (Filomena Ferreto), Tony Ramos (Juca) and José Wilker (Marcelo) are some examples. Direction by Jorge Fernando and written by a genius, Silvio de Abreu, "A Próxima Vítima" ("The Next Victim") was an incredible success and was exported to Portugal and other many countries (like USA and Russia), but changing the murder on the final chapter to maintain the suspense till the end.
