Deutschland 1995/1996, Spielfilm

Inhalt

The Killer′s Mother

Eddie Hartmann is a hard-drinkin′ undertaker′s assistant. He indulges in murder fantasies about his wife, who is cheating on him in public. So when Theo Bono, an unknown mystery writer, dies in a traffic accident, Eddie sets to comforting the man′s widow, Olga.

But what neither Eddie nor Olga realize is that Theo is not dead at all, but has arranged his death together with his mistress Jennifer and the undertaker Mehlig. From beyond the grave, as it were, Theo sets up Jennifer′s filthy-rich and slightly senile husband. Things start getting complicated, however, when the mystery writer, presumed dead, is awarded the coveted "Golden Cannon" book award post-humously.
