In this paper we study the special Dirichlet series L(s)=23n=1sin(2πn3)ns,  sC This series converges uniformly in the half-plane Re(s)>1 and thus represents a holomorphic function there. We show that the function L can be extended to a holomorphic function in the whole complex-plane. The values of the function L at the points 0,±1,2,±3,4,±5, are obtained. The values at the positive integers 1,3,5, are determined by means of a functional equation satisfied by L.
