A MURDER OF CROWS – HUSH, LITTLE BABY (GERMANY/2017/CRIME & THRILLER)
DER KOMMISSAR UND DAS KIND
督察長Martin Brühl接到報案，下令搜查周圍的街道、森林區和鄰近水域。報案父母確信孩子被人綁架，不是獨自出走。Martin Brühl試圖安撫這位母親，但他發現並不容易，因為兩年前的類似案件不幸以悲劇收場。然而刑事局心理學家Susanne Koch卻有不同看法。她認為這個娃娃是給母親的一個訊息：「娃娃對你而言就夠了，反正你也沒有足夠的時間陪伴孩子。」

After a merry lantern parade, two-year-old Paulina disappears from her room. The daughter of the well-known TV presenter Caroline Schäfer was put to sleep by the nanny, but now there is suddenly a doll in the cot.
Chief Inspector Martin Brühl is notified, and the surrounding streets, wooded areas and adjacent bodies of water are combed. The parents are convinced that their child was kidnapped and cannot have run away alone. Brühl tries to calm the mother down, but he finds it difficult because there was a similar case two years ago, which unfortunately didn't end well. However, the LKA psychologist Susanne Koch sees a different background. In her opinion, the doll was a message to the mother: "That's enough for you. You don't have enough time for your child anyway.”
Meanwhile, a ransom note arrives. The police meticulously prepare the handover, but Brühl fears that no one will collect the money, as in the Roth case two years ago. Based on some clues, Brühl discovers that the current kidnapping could be related to the Roth case.
Martin, who is now sleepless and rushes from track to track, from contradiction to contradiction with nightmare visions, threatens to finally lose himself in the case. When another child, the nine-year-old boy next door Janosch, disappears without a trace, the situation seems to be heading for a catastrophe.
