DON’T WORRY. JUST DIE
Many things are exactly as they were. And yet everything’s changed.
Police Commissioner Henning Bröhmann is back at his desk at the local police station in the quiet environs of Vogelsberg. But this time he’s on a mission. In the past he wasn’t exactly a model of commitment and motivation. Now he’s determined to turn over a new leaf and do a perfect job. So perfect, in fact, that it’s causing problems. Meanwhile, his aging mother is starting to show signs of dementia. And even worse, he’s just about to reach 50!
