One of Germany’s most acclaimed films features Peter Lorre as child-murderer who threatens the serene life in Berlin and alarms the population. In addition to the official investigations the organized criminal underworld pursues the search for the murderer on its own in order to protect their shady business. And in fact, the crooks manage to capture him, putting him before an underworld court, which sentences him to death. However, before the murderer is executed, the police appear and arrest him “in the name of the law”.
