Auf Einmal


For there is nothing either good

or bad, but thinking makes it so.

Happy Birthday to you...

Happy birthday dear Anna,

happy birthday to you.

Make a wish.


Hello, Karsten Bhm here.

58 Lenne Street.

I need an ambulance.

You don't have to go along.

We reached her husband.

Anna came with Caro.

Caro is a friend of Judith's.

Judith is the girlfriend

of my colleague Florian.

I didn't know Anna.

We partied.

Everyone left around three o'clock.

Except Anna.

She stayed.

She looked sad.

She told me it was her birthday.

We had a shot to celebrate.

And all of a sudden...

she had trouble breathing.

She was feeling hot and dizzy.

At first I thought

it was the alcohol

and made nothing of it.

But it got worse.

Why didn't you call emergency


My first thought

was the clinic because...

it's close to my place.

I go past it every day.

Maybe I thought...

intuitively it would be faster.

How was I to know it was closed?


Even a child would have called

emergency right away, no?



In retrospect

I'd say the same thing, but...

I'd been drinking, too.

It happened so fast...

I have no idea why I did what.

How long did it take you

to get to the clinic and back?

Ten minutes.

Fifteen, tops.

Did you have sexual intercourse?


I live with my girlfriend.

- But she wasn't home.

- She's on a business trip.

Had you quarrelled,

had there been a dispute?

I already told you

I didn't know Anna.

You don't need to know someone

to have a fight...

No such thing happened.

So the bruise on her arm

has nothing to do with you, right?

What bruise?

I need to lie down.

What happened?

Leave him be.

I spoke to your father

on the phone.

You were gone for

ten to fifteen minutes.

The autopsy report

will be decisive.

It will tell us whether,

in this time span,

the life of the deceased

could have been saved.

You might be investigated

for failing to give assistance

or manslaughter.

But we're not there yet.

But Karsten did actually help.

He went to the clinic.

It wasn't his fault it was closed.

If it had been open and he'd

returned in time with a doctor,

it would have been

genuine assistance.

In the end, he didn't

call emergency

in the first ten minutes.

That's a simple fact.

But under stress people can

have unexpected reactions.

The main factor in this case is

what Mrs. Kowaljow's

family will do.

Since we spoke last I've gathered

some information about them.

Anna Kowaljow:
29 years old,

married for seven years...

to Andrej Kowaljow,

who works in the factory here.

They have a five-year-old daughter.


Kowaljow has a child?


They are Russian Germans

who moved here.

My God. I see.

What do you see?

Who knows what her

intentions were?

Maybe it was a

blessing in disguise.

Dad, come off it, please.

Mr Reiss...

I, my son, my father

were born here and grew up here.

Neither I nor my family has ever

been in trouble with the law.

We are honourable citizens,

we have always done our duty.

Your father-in-law knows our

family very well. You see?

I do. Don't worry.

There are currently

no investigative proceedings

against Karsten.

Let's wait and see.

But above all it was a mistake

to have talked to the police.

You should have asked for a lawyer

at once.

Please speak to no one

about that night from now on.

Just try to go about your life...

as if none of this had happened.

I still can't believe it.

We'll take the rings.

I'll do that.

I've got it.

- I'd be glad to help.

- It's faster if I do it.

I'll bring the plates then.
