In their first case as partners, Karl and Gunter investigate what looks to be the suicide of a priest, whose dead body was discovered in the rectory by the rectory housekeeper, a deaf mute. In trying to describe what she saw, she points to a photograph of an angel of death. It begins to seem less like suicide when a second priest seemingly killed himself the same way, by a single bullet to the head. While the Commissioner knows more about the why of the deaths, the identity of who committed them can be found in the Bible. Meanwhile, Gunter gets a little more accustomed to his life as Karl's truly deceased partner. And Martine is convinced that Gunter is still alive despite she being the one who shot him in the face.

Did You Know?


Johann Tannhauser: I've been giving thought to the idea of naming my child. It's a great responsibility, choosing the right name. If I call him "Zeus"... but that would cause problems of high expectations. Maybe I call him "Awful." Would cause him problems of low expectations. Maybe I call him "Fire"! That would cause panic whenever someone calls his name. I would like this. But you know, I'm really looking forward to disciplining our child. Because without discipline, how can he ever learn... discipline.
