Neues vom Hexer


It fits, Sir!


This is Edgar Wallace.

I enjoyed your music very much.

Thank you, Edwards. I win.

To another one!

- Something else, Mylady?

Yes, Tea, please, Edwards.

- Yes, Mylady.

Excuse me for a moment.

It shouldn't take too long, Archie.

A ticket, Sir.

- Damn it.

Another shot. The last one.

Charles, it's time for bed.

Mum, really?

- Yes, do what Angel says.

Your turn, Archie.

I know.

Lord Curtain...

is dead.


- Got no time.

May ask you something? Listen!

- I got no time. What's up then?

You are officer - Unfortunately, yes!

Well! We, the people, pay for you!

I have the right to ask something.

- Why? Are you from Australia?

Who is this snotty person?

- Who?

The one in plain clothes.

- That's 008.

How dare you stop an australian inspector...

from departure

and hauling him...

across London watched by the police?

- Dear Wesby! You cannot...

simply go back to australia,

after all, what we have undergone!

You know exactly,

that I have lost dear Higgins

for months since he married.

He looks so happy, doesn't he?

I had to let him go!

You understand this, don't you?

- We were his best men!

Of course, Wesby.

- Nonetheless, I must return to Sydney.

No, you don't have to.

Look here.

I managed to get another 3 weeks

paid vacation for you. In London,

the most wonderful city. Wesby!

Come on, sit down.

Thank you.

What is the real reason?

Lord Curtain.

Dead, shot, killed,

Headline, Topic No. 1 in London!

And we don't know the killer.

Not my problem!

Na, na, na!

My people told me,

you have already checked the site.

Wait a minute!

- OK. A mysterious case,

extraordinally mysterious. That's all

what I can... Sir, what is it?

I beg your pardon, what?

- II bring the Tea, Sir John.

Yes! She brings the tea, Wesby.

- So what?

May I?

- Yes, of course, Susan...

Miss Copperfield.

- There is a Miss Margie Fielding,

The niece of Lord Curtain, Sir.

- The Lady is the niece of...


- What does she want?

I don't know.

You see? That's why I held you back!

Say something!

What's about this new murder then, hm?

- I can't tell you anything.

The case is too obscure.

- So I told my officers.

Mysterious! I don't like tea now.

Please leave.

Interested in this business card?

It's from his desk.

"Hexer is back"!.

The Hexer? The Hexer is the killer?

Oh, heavens. Not again!

Excuse me, Sir.

- The commons' meeting was scandalous.


Excuse me, Sir.

Finch, you ask me if i read

the newspaper? - Yes, I did!

Especially the part about me.

- The big part about you, Sir!

Sorry, Sir.

- Finch, where was I, 15th of march?

Here, Sydney. We were all day long

on the boat, fishing.

And the very same day I am supposed

to have killed Lord Curtain.

The one and only thing we killed

was the shark who wanted to kill me.

I can't be the murderer.

- Sir!


(All) Pst!

The killer, Sir...

the killer used your name!


And you think...

- We shouldn't tolerate that, Sir.

Especially since there are efforts in

London, according to this newspaper,

to file a lawsuit against me.

- Then we will...

read in this newspaper,

how it ended.

I am disappointed, Sir.

You think, we should show up at court?

Yes... I think so, Sir.

Well. Get us 3 tickets then.


I am opening the case on Arthur Milton,

accused of the murder of Lord

Horace William Curtain.

This hearing is being done

in absence of the defendant.

Is Arthur Milton here?

He may show up.

Who are you?

- Your honour, that's Mrs. Milton and...

and a friend of Mr. Milton.

- Mrs. Milton?

The wife of Arthur Milton?

Edgar Wallace

Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace (1 April 1875 – 10 February 1932) was an English writer. Born into poverty as an illegitimate London child, Wallace left school at age 12. He joined the army at age 21 and was a war correspondent during the Second Boer War, for Reuters and the Daily Mail. Struggling with debt, he left South Africa, returned to London, and began writing thrillers to raise income, publishing books including The Four Just Men (1905). Drawing on his time as a reporter in the Congo, covering the Belgian atrocities, Wallace serialised short stories in magazines such as The Windsor Magazine and later published collections such as Sanders of the River (1911). He signed with Hodder and Stoughton in 1921 and became an internationally recognised author. After an unsuccessful bid to stand as Liberal MP for Blackpool (as one of David Lloyd George's Independent Liberals) in the 1931 general election, Wallace moved to Hollywood, where he worked as a script writer for RKO studios. He died suddenly from undiagnosed diabetes, during the initial drafting of King Kong (1933). Wallace was such a prolific writer that one of his publishers claimed that a quarter of all books in England were written by him. As well as journalism, Wallace wrote screen plays, poetry, historical non-fiction, 18 stage plays, 957 short stories, and over 170 novels, 12 in 1929 alone. More than 160 films have been made of Wallace's work. He is remembered for the creation of King Kong, as a writer of 'the colonial imagination', for the J. G. Reeder detective stories, and for The Green Archer serial. He sold over 50 million copies of his combined works in various editions, and The Economist describes him as "one of the most prolific thriller writers of [the 20th] century", although few of his books are still in print in the UK. more…
