Don’t kiss me in the neck. It’s unpleasant and it doesn’t arouse me.
It’s unpleasant… Mark? Mark? -Are you OK?
-Yes, I am fine. I just had a nightmare. Maybe you’re sick.
There is no fever, though. No, I am fine. I was thinking about the vacations.
Shall we travel around Europe by car? Will you buy tickets? Where to? You were talking about the vacations. Are you sure you’re all right? Yes. I’m just still sleepy. Coffee.
Or one may go crazy from all these papers. No sugar, I hope? Of course. I’ll be close by. -This is it; I won’t disturb you.
-OK. Mark, we have problems.
Bolotov is in the conference room. Damn it. He asked for all the financial reports.
He is sitting there studying them. Damn, damn, damn. Listen… And he is mad for you are avoiding him. I can’t see Bolotov right now.
I simply can’t! What do you mean – you can’t?
Mark, wait. -Where are you going?
-Not now, sorry! Mark, wait! Explain what is going on! -Good morning.
-Oh, Oleg! -Good morning.
-Hi. Hi, Oleg. Are you all right? You have been looking
like a real maniac recently. I’m fine.
Trying to get the feel of the image. And understand the criminal mind. The most important thing is to stop
in time, Oleg. -Yes, right.
-No, Ruslan, you’re wrong. The person lives at work. He is not sparing himself.
And you say he shall “stop in time”! One shall enjoy one’s work. I believe that our criminal’s mother
also used to tell him to enjoy whatever he would be doing
in life. -Therefore…
-Come in. -Good afternoon.
-Good afternoon. Good morning, everybody. -Please meet a new head of your group.
-Hello. Investigator Roman Alexeyevitch Dementyev,
Major of Justice. Be nice to him. -Roman Alexeyevitch!
-Do you know each other? Yes. Hello. Please come in and sit down. Roman Alexeyevitch was born in our city
and worked in the police here. I have already told him
about the case of the strangler and explained its importance
and seriousness. I hope that his huge practical experience
will allow him to take a look at this case
from a new angle. -Vladimir Nikolayevitch, I beg your pardon.
-What is it? An urgent call.
May I go out for two minutes? -Go!
-I am sorry. Let’s get back to the case. Any new ideas? Denis? The plan of operative actions
hasn’t yield any results yet. I am not hiding from you. OK, OK. I remember about the deadline. I do. I just need some time. No, wait.
I’ll solve my issues and call you myself. -Hello?
-Honey, let’s choose the hotel. There are two options. One has a park on the third line, another one is on the first line
but it doesn’t have a park. We also need to agree on the dates. Alina, choose yourself.
I’m sorry, I can’t talk. I’m driving to negotiations
and will be home late. Bye. Have you made a decision? You know what? No. I need some more time. I’ll come a bit later. Did something happen? I don’t know. Mark… it’s OK, though. Talk to me. He almost stopped being at home lately.
He is out all the time. We practically don’t see each other. Of course. He is a workaholic. You must be right.
He is expanding his business now. See? I feel as if I am going crazy. Support him.
You were saying that to me yourself. Right. What may be more boring
than a jealous wife? I love the period of sweet and flowers.
Especially when it’s short. Shall we go to my place? Let’s better go to a hotel. -I want it! How many stars?
-As many as you want. HOTEL Why are you staring at me like this? I am married. You are, aren’t you? What a surprise! Did you guess it? Of course, I did.
One may see a married man from far away. Plus, a client named Alina
is calling you so often. Don’t worry about it. I don’t care. -Women usually care.
-Why shall I care? I have no plans of marrying you. Our sex was brilliant. If you’re unfaithful to your wife,
this is between you and her. I am not unfaithful.
This is the first time. Oh, really? Did you fall in love with me? At the first glance,
and for the rest of your life? I am in luck! -I have to go.
-Stop it! Did you get offended? Stop it. I am not 15 anymore. I am not offended.
I just can’t stay for the night. May I stay here? The room is cool. I have never stayed in such rooms! Yes, of course. Mum? Mum? Mum! What has happened? That nightmare again? Be quiet, be quiet. My honey. I’m here. It’s just a bad dream. Mum, I saw that lady in my dream again. Calm down. It was just a nightmare. -May I sleep with you?
-Of course. Sure. Come on. I’m sorry. I came late yesterday. I didn’t want to wake you up. You were sleeping with Anton. Yes, he had the same nightmare again.
The scary lady. Hi, hi. Come to me. He misses you. He has been waiting
for you all evening yesterday. -I couldn’t reach you.
-The connection was bad there. How are you? Why isn’t he at school? He didn’t sleep well.
I decided to leave him at home. We’ll go for a walk and visit grandpa. Will you put the kettle on? Come on. I need to go to the shower.
And go to the office. -How was your trip?
-Fine, thank you. -Will you tell me about it?
-Don’t bother. I haven’t had shower after the trip. Why are you so happy?
Have you caught the criminal? -Looks like that.
-Complain! -We have checked all prisons.
-I see. Three months ago,
Egor Shishkaryov was released. He was serving a term for a robbery. He was imprisoned after the attack at Antonina Sivyakova. After that, the attacks stopped –
as far as we know. And one more thing. Egor Shishkaryov is registered
as an outpatient of the mental hospital. We interviewed his neighbors. He is a hothead, and he drinks. They are a bit scared of him.
We came to him, but he was out. He looked into his room
through the window. His apartment is on the first floor. It’s a complete mess. He evidently has problems
in his private life. Women don’t want him,
so he is revenging on them. This is normal. I know him. He was a suspect in the case
of Maria Vorontsova’s disappearance. He worked as a driver in her district. It was my last case
before I left for Moscow. Maybe that Vorontsova is also
from this series of crimes? Then all coincidences are not accidental. We shall detain Shishkaryov. Why hurry? Did you read this? “Clever, calculating, careful. People trust him easily.
Especially women”. He doesn’t fit his profile. I agree. But this is just a theory. They are clever, careful,
charming and nice only in movies. In life, it’s all different. OK. Work on him. We have done it. Let’s detain and interrogate him,
after all. No. Just talk to him. And get back to working
on our main version. Did you visit the bar
where our victim was last seen? -No.
-Why are we sitting, then? -Have you thrown it?
-I have. How cruel! It means we’ll share. Irina. I am a trainee. Roma. I mean Roman, investogator. I’ve just been transferred. -Hi, mum.
-Oh! You scared me, parasite! -Am I so scary?
-No. But I didn’t expect to see you here.
In the broad daylight. You don’t visit me often. My daughter-in-law visits me
more often than my own son! Stop being grumpy. Better make some tea. You almost made your mum stutter. Mum, where are Masha’s clothes? Here, in the wardrobe. Why do you need her clothes? I just need them. What for? Mum, why do you start? I don’t understand why I keep them. Mark, why do you need it? My friend asked to lend it
to his daughter. She doesn’t have a dress to go
to the graduation ball in. What nonsense are you saying? This dress isn’t for the graduation ball. Mum, why are you interrogating me? Mark, don’t you dare offend Alina. Grandpa must have left to buy
the Chinese noodles again. -Hi.
-Hi, dad. Who has come? Anton! -Grandpa!
-Hi, hi. We went to the trampoline with mum. There were game machines there too.
And I rode a car. Where did you see
so many interesting things? In the circus? No. There are no game machines
in the circus. We went to the trade center. Why did you buy so much?
I’ve bought everything. What did you buy?
We’ll feed you with normal food. Anton, take the bag. Yes, right. Go on. -Dad!
-It’s all right. He will manage. -Did something happen?
-No, everything is fine. Don’t lie to me. I can see that something happened. Sit down. Come on, sit down. It’s Mark. He has been so weird recently. He is as if not with me. He doesn’t answer the phone. It seems to me he has somebody. -Who?
-Another woman. -Wow!
-Do you think I am a fool? You are, a bit. But you said yourself
that he married his job. -He married me.
-No, I know that. It’s good when a man is engrossed
in his work. It’s also right when a woman
is looking after her house. Is that why you’re trying to make me
return to work all the time? No. I meant normal women. But you’re not like everybody else. Dad… tell me about mum. I remember something but… not a lot. I remember that you used to quarrel.
But I don’t know much. Your mum was a very difficult person. She was very upset about not being able
to realize herself. She buried herself in a marriage
with a police officer, didn’t she? Something like that. I think that was the reason why… You know, after the accident,
when I started using the wheelchair, I got more time. I began to think. And to remember her often. I am thinking about whether
I was acting in the right way. Did I do everything possible to prevent… -Her suicide?
-Dad, dad, stop it. I know one thing for sure. I loved her very much. I know, I know.
You did everything you could. Don’t blame yourself. Do you hear? OK, I won’t. But you shall understand me. This is the reason why I’m talking
to you about having a job. I want you to realize your potential.
Do you see? When one is busy,
one is free from silly thoughts. About the husband, for instance. OK. -Mum, are we playing spies?
-Yeah. I am at place. The keys, the general power of attorney. -Will you examine the car?
-Why examine it? The car is fine. -Let’s consider the issue solved.
-Yeah. -See you soon.
-No way. I doubt it. I know players. They hold on for a month or two.
And then start all over again. Nobody saw anything in the bar
where Yana was drinking. The barwoman can’t say who Yana left
with or whether she left alone. I see. We got a print-out
from the mobile network operator. And texts between Yana and her boyfriend. His name is Mikhail,
and he was threatening her. -Have you talked to Mikhail?
-The subscriber can’t be reached. What else did the barwoman say? She did tell us a lot of new things. Yana’s mother told us
that she was reserved and lonely, while the barwoman said that Yana came
to the bar to openly pick up men. She used to leave with them. No wonder Mikhail could get mad. Then it’s not a piece of a puzzle in our
series but a murder for revenge reasons. What about Shishkaryov? Have you found him? No. Start looking. -Ira, hello.
-Hello, Comrade Major. No change? I think I had some.
I must have forgotten money in my jacket. -Take it.
-What about you? -I’ll be suffering.
-Why suffer? I’ll treat you. What will he tell us? “Yes, I strangle girls, I am sorry,
I was wrong. This is all my wild nature”. Not his nature but his mission. Our hero is cleansing the world of dirt,
relieves it of sins, so to say. I still can’t understand.
Why shall we talk to Shishkaryov? We shall bring him to the department
and interrogate. No, Major is right.
What will you detain him for? For the robbery?
He has served his time for that. And we can’t imprison him
for mess in the room. Here comes our client. Mr. Shishkaryov? Officer Yesoyev. Stop, stop! Wait! Freeze! Hands! Stop, son of a bitch! Stop! Stop or I’ll shoot! How are you? -The gates! Run!
-Stop! The license plate number, fast! I love quests. I was in all the quest-rooms in our town.
Unfortunately. Now, I need to go to other cities.
Have you ever played? No, I don’t go to parties. -Are you bored?
-No, I think I am boring. I think you’re a bit untamed. I was out in the wild. Let’s go to a club or a karaoke. Yes. Who? Where is Yesoyev? Yes, I’m on my way. I’m going to the hospital. Yesoyev was stabbed. MARK Hi. Will you be home soon? I don’t know, honey.
I have one more meeting. Can you come faster? I wanted to tell you…
just don’t laugh at me. I think
somebody has been watching me lately. What? Yes.
A car was following me one of these days. Maybe it just seemed to me. But I feel the same at home.
When you’re out. Don’t go crazy.
Drink some valerian drops and go to bed. We’ll talk tomorrow. Bye. Hi. You’re a good student, aren’t you? You know that you must switch
your phone off during the lesson. -Shall we go to the hotel?
-First, we shall eat! Well? He is fine. Vital organs are intact. But he lost much blood. -Will he live?
-He will. -Very good.
-Thank you. How are you? Fine. Did you inform the relatives? Yes. His wife is on her way. We left officers
by Shishkaryov’s apartment. And by his parents’ house. I doubt that he would return home. Go. I’ll wait for his wife. Come on. Calm down. Go. Yes? Hello, this is Ira.
How is your officer doing? He is fine. Great. Will you come back? They promise it will be fun here
in the evening. -I’m at the hospital.
-I’ll wait for you here. What a cool restaurant!
I have never been in such ones before. Let it be our place! Nobody took me to such places before you. Or maybe somebody did,
but I don’t remember. What do you mean – you don’t remember? It’s nothing. Forget about it. You might think that I am crazy. No, I won’t think so. Tell me about it. OK. I only… remember four years of my life. My husband used to tell me about everything
that had happened before. I had a trauma. And I lost my memory. Well? I shouldn’t have told you about it. May I help you? OK. Peel the carrots. Hold the knife.
But be careful, don’t cut yourself. OK. -Yes?
-Honey, I won’t come today. What? Anton is cooking dinner for you. The negotiations were so exhausting.
I am barely alive. It’s dangerous to drive in this state. I’m afraid to fall asleep on the way. Alina? Do you hear me? Alina? Yes, OK. OK. Good boy; go on. Why did you stop? Any problems? No, this is it. Wait. Wow! What is it? It’s not new, right? It must be your wife’s dress. Whom you had strangled. Right? What nonsense are you talking about?
I didn’t kill anybody. You did strangle her.
Now, you put it on me. You want to strangle me too. What else do you have there? Well? Do I look like a woman
whom you used to love? Where is she? She left me. What a fool!
I’d never leave a man like you. Is that all? Are you out of breath? I am sleeping. -What? Sleeping?
-Yes, I am sleeping. -Shall I go now?
-Go. Throw the rubbish out. What a bastard!
Did you simply want to sleep with me? Yeah. Bastard. A crazy bastard. What are you doing? Do you want to make a tattoo? I had one before. A tiny one. Here. A very small one. But my husband made me erase it. He was a bit crazy. A religious type. The tattoo was tiny, though.
A flower. Here. Tell me… you don’t remember anything
at all, do you? Childhood, school, first love? Maybe you shall see a phycologist?
A hypnotist. Get off me!
What difference does my past make? I am sure that nothing good happened
to me there. Plus, what do you care? We have agreed that there is nothing
more than sex between us. Where are you going? There is only sex between us.
What do you care? Hi. Hi. You came, after all. Why are you sitting in the dark? I can’t sleep. Will you have dinner? Anton and I baked eggplants. No, I am not hungry. Anton doesn’t like them,
and I don’t like them much too. Good night. Why didn’t you inform me
that we have a suspect? It was my decision,
Vladimir Nikolayevitch. Really? Can you explain? Shishkaryov doesn’t fit
the criminal’s profile. I thought that it would be enough
to talk to him. I don’t care for your classifications,
Major! I need work and results,
not your theories! Was Shishkaryov a witness
in a case of the missing lady? The term of his imprisonment coincides
with a pause in the murders. What else did you need to realize
that he might be dangerous? A note on his forehead “I’m the Maniac”? Where is the expert? Where is Oleg, I am asking you? He asked me for a permission
to leave on a personal matter. Oleg? Hi. What brings you here? -Hi. I need to talk.
-Anything urgent? I am late for a meeting. Yes. Here you go. Why are you so nervous? Problems at home? I think it’s you who have problems. Why do you think so? Have you been unfaithful to Alina
for long? -I don’t get it.
-You have a kiss mark on your neck. You put toner on it, of course. But it’s not enough to cheat
on a police expert and a wife. -Alina left this mark.
-Why are you lying to me? You used to have kiss marks
at the beginning of your married life but then, they disappeared. Family life became more routine.
It happens. Have you been watching my kiss marks
over the years? I am sorry. It’s a professional thing.
We’re all maniacs here. OK, talk to me. Who is she? I wish I could fire you all! So sorry, Comrade Colonel.
I’ll answer for this. I don’t care for your apologies. Apologize to your employee who is lying
at the hospital wounded! You do have problems, old man. And I thought I was in trouble! What do I do? What do I do now? Does she really look so much like Masha? Alina has no idea about Nadya’s existence,
am I right? Look, it doesn’t mean anything. She looks like her and only remembers
the last four years. So what? And the tattoo! May one erase a tattoo
so that it wasn’t seen at all? One may, if it’s small and fresh. Masha made a tattoo
right before her disappearance. Look, everybody has tattoos nowadays.
It still may be a coincidence. Everything? She looks like Masha, plus,
her memory loss and a tattoo! Old man, you can’t imagine
what is going on inside of me. -If she is indeed Masha…
-OK. There is a simple way to find out.
The DNA test. It’s an easy method. What do you think? Shall I somehow obtain her saliva? No. Just take a hair from her brush. And one of Anton’s too. That will do. Oleg, where have you been? -OK. I will go.
-What are you doing here? -We have agreed.
-I couldn’t reach you. You didn’t answer the phone.
Did you block my number? I have paid you this month. I need more. Otherwise, I wouldn’t come. It can’t go on like this.
I won’t give you the money. I won’t let you talk to me like this.
Do you hear? I need 150 thousand. Now. Or else, I’ll go to the police.
I’ll do it at last. You’re a murderer. Let them know about it. I am not a murderer. And the police don’t have anything
to do with it. Why are you paying, then? Are you afraid? Shishkaryov? I don’t even want to hear
about that idiot. Where may I find him? I have no idea. I haven’t heard about him
since he had been fired. What had he been fired for? Why keep him? It was not a person
but a walking catastrophe. An alcoholic, and a rude one too. People don’t get fired for being rude. -Stepanytch, come faster!
-On my way! He was fired for being rude.
He was rude to the passengers. Did he have any friends? Frankly speaking, friendship
and Egor are not compatible. However, he did have one friend.
Dima Kuznetsov. He went missing. Was it long ago? Two months after Shishkaryov
had been fired. The police came and enquired
about them too. They looked for him but to no avail. -Thank you.
-You’re welcome. Goodbye. -Shall we replace the blocks?
-Not today. Stepanytch? Messi against Akinfeyev.
Our team is winning! I don’t know. Maybe you’re right. -What? Watch him?
-Why? Check his phone. What? Why not? Is it better to hide your head
in the sand like an ostrich? OK. I heard you. Nine meters! Come on, count nine meters. KITTEN, FORGIVE A FOOL. OF COURSE,
THERE IS MORE THAN SEX BETWEEN US. DO COME, I MISS YOU
