“Police Call 110”: Solo Appearance by Inspector Ross |  free press

His colleague Adam gave up in frustration. Now Vincent Ross has his first case on the German-Polish border, which he has to solve on his own. Help comes from a quirky police officer.

Frankfurt (Oder).

They had just pulled themselves together and realized that they get along well with each other – the sensitive Commissioner Ross and Haudrauf Raczek. Adam has already given up tired and disillusioned and Vincent has to investigate alone at the German-Polish border for the first time. But the inspector knows how to help himself and involves an eager police officer from the area in the investigation into the death of a Polish small business owner.

The new “Polizeiruf 110” entitled “God of Bankruptcy” gives actor André Kaczmarczyk a lot of space and reveals surprising things about the region. The first broadcasts the episode this Sunday at 8:15 p.m.

There are also pilgrims in Brandenburg

“So the paths of the Lord also lead through Brandenburg,” says Chief Inspector Vincent Ross in astonishment. A dead man is found near the Way of St. James, which leads through the Märkisches. Antoni Mazur (Frank Jendrzytza) had apparently joined pilgrims – now his body lies in a gravel pit. District police officer Karl Rogov (Frank Leo Schröder) is the first to arrive at the scene and immediately takes over the interrogations. Rogov, a police officer from the old school and formerly with the police, does not have a good reputation: According to the staff, there are problems with the superiors.

However, the psychologically trained investigator Ross sees the qualities of his colleague and lets him work on the case – as a queer commissioner from the past, he knows only too well what distrust means. “Maybe he wasn’t average enough,” Ross ironically replies to his Polish colleagues, who are annoyed by the busy Rogov. This time, however, Ross doesn’t just need psychological flair to get behind the ramifications of the case. The help of the grumpy Rogov, who likes to eat doner kebabs and writes everything down in his notebook, comes to meet him.

During the investigation, it turns out that the dead man was in despair because he had major financial problems. He was facing bankruptcy proceedings. His wife Lina (Katrin Heller) didn’t know much. Klaudiusz (Roman Wieslaw Zanowicz), the father of the dead man, rejects the police. However, both indicate that insolvency administrator Udo Schick (Bernhard Schir) and his debt adviser Jonathan Guardian (Godehard Giese) are said to have exerted great pressure on the dead man.

The daughter of the insolvency administrator, Maria Schick (Anna-Maria Bednarzik), is also on the pilgrimage route. She has taken a break from school, which her father is not happy about. The questioning in the pilgrim group turns out to be tough for Ross and Rogov, most of the participants are preoccupied with themselves. When it comes out that the insolvency administrator intercepted his daughter shortly before Mazur died, he too is suspected of a crime.

Vincent Ross listens to his emotions

With “God of Bankruptcy”, the crime thriller episode takes up a current topic: namely the existential difficulties that one can get into in a crisis, in which human tragedies can take place and personal bankruptcies become visible. Author Mike Bäuml has collected real stories from those affected by bankruptcy during the pandemic. The film places the mental consequences credibly in the foreground.

And how does Vincent do with the investigation without Adam? In his first solo case, André Kaczmarczyk remains a pleasantly different commissioner. The role has none of the usual brashness and haste that can also leave viewers unsatisfied. Kaczmarczyk’s portrayal of a commissioner without a classic role understanding is a great enrichment for the police call. Investigator Vincent follows his emotions and looks into the souls of his fellow human beings.

A strong counterpart would be nice

“If you take a critical view of the fact that the boundaries between investigators and psychologists merge, I think that’s a good thing,” says Kaczmarczyk of the German Press Agency. This emphatic, people-oriented side could definitely also stand in the way as an obstacle. The film plays with it, describes the mime.

Will Vincent soon be investigating in the permanent duo again? Kaczmarczyk alone can carry the film with his acting. But his role also lives from the corrective. “I really want a person who represents a strong counterpart with a clever relationship between closeness and distance,” says Kaczmarczyk. But he can also live with it if someone else was always by his side in every episode – just like in normal police service. “That could also have a charm in the film if you are surprised by the respective investigators.” (dpa)
