White Lines spoilers - Who really killed Axel?

Axel's murder is done by the hands of Anna, and it happens on the night of his birthday party. Axel reveals to Anna that he has sold out all the clubs of their group, along with property and music rights to Oriol Calafat at a bargain price. He also decides to burn 100 million pesetas in a bonfire, making it the centrepiece of the party. He saw how they were getting too obsessed with money and power and that they needed to start afresh.

Anna discovers the money and starts arguing with Axel. Axel reminds Anna of the time they have been sleeping together behind her boyfriend Marcus' back. During this argument, Axel snorts a line of cocaine but proceeds to choke and bleed from the nose. Anna, instead of helping him, shoves his face in the swimming pool and tries to drown him. Marcus finds out and tries to save Axel, but he remains still.
