(TV Series)


Plot Summary

  • The team reopen the murder of East German refugee Max Klein, whose last words were 'Blue Flower'. Visiting the site of his death Sandra and Steve meet Grace Cusack, whose son was killed at the same spot a year before Max's death and tells them he came to England to look for his daughter Mia who had escaped East Berlin ahead of him. Meanwhile Gerry and Brian visit a recycling centre where Max worked and learn that he stole bundles of documents but are challenged by arrogant Inspector Rosser, who claims that they could interfere with his investigation of the centre in connection with identity fraud. When Mia is located she denounces her father as a member of the Blue Flower group which was pro-Stasi though ultimately the deaths of Grace's son and Max prove to be related and less political than expected.

  • UCOS reopens the investigation into the stabbing death five years ago of Max Klein after the police find his fingerprints on documents seized during a drug raid. He was treated by paramedics at the scene of the stabbing and his last words in German were 'blue flower'. For reasons unknown, he used to spend three hours every day standing on the same spot just outside Shepherd's Bush Market. Max Klein was a picker in a recycling plant separating plastics from paper. They also learn that he was looking for his daughter who was sent out of East Germany just two years before the Berlin Wall came down. Grace Cusack, whose son was killed on the corner where Klein spends his mornings, says he was a nice man. When the police learn he worked for the the Stasi, the East German secret police, they think it may be related to his death. The answer lies elsewhere however.
