Perhaps it’s me, but the cases the Ucos team investigate are getting increasingly weird. This time they’re looking into the murder of Max, an East German immigrant who loitered on the same London street corner every morning and whose last words were “blue flower”.
A chance meeting with a woman whose son was killed in a road accident nearby sends the detectives in the right direction, which is to the recycling plant where Max had been employed to sort waste paper. Then it turns out that prior to the demolition of the Berlin Wall, he had connections with the Stasi. What’s not clear is whether he was working for them or against them.
The detectives investigate the murder of an East German immigrant, but all they have to go on are his mysterious final words, which translate as `blue flower'. As they piece together his remarkable story, Sandra tries to gain the trust of his estranged daughter. Crime drama, starring Amanda Redman.
