call this number, it’s urgent! Anna Petrovna Lezhneva, born August 5, 1947,

Yes. I’m not a spy. Shall I throw it away? You always throw your newspapers away. Help her. She collapsed. Give me the bag! – Give me the bag!
– Calm down. Hold her. Put the purse back! – Scoundrel!
– Are you the husband? I ask, are you a husband? – Yes.
– It’s an epileptic seizure. She may bite her tongue off. Hold it like this. Hold. Are you a doctor? Almost.
Did someone call an ambulance? I did. Hold it. You have great reflexes. Yes. – What happened?
– A seizure. She’ll feel better in ten minutes. Oh my God. Come in, your food is getting cold. My God, I’m sorry. It has a temper. What about your food? Emergency station Good morning, doctor Mashukov. My name is Sergey Lezhnev.
I’ve been transferred to your team today. Tamara Nikolaevna. Good morning, Anatoly Sergeevich,
I’m your driver today. Okay. I knew this won’t be an easy day. Come on, get in. So why did they kick you,
off your team? We couldn’t get along. Are you sure we’ll get along? Sergey is a great guy. This is a misunderstanding. We went to a police general house. He had a heart attack. His house was full of cops. And Sergey… Watch the road! Why do they always transfer them
to my team? Mashukov, the day’s just started,
but you’re already on edge. Check your thyroid. – Sergey, are you a medical student?
– No. By the way,
Sergey speaks French very well. Beautiful language. – I love it.
– Watch the road! How is it you speak French? My mother is a French teacher. Sergey, what is this song about? About love. Be careful. Here he is. – How did you get so dirty?
– I fell from the rig on a can of paint. Move your fingers.
Not on this hand! – I can’t, it hurts.
– That’s okay. – Looks like a dislocation.
– Will you take me to the hospital? You’ll paint my car from the inside.
Take off his jacket. Get up, bacillus. It hurts! Let him go. – Give me your gloves.
– Get off me. – We’ll have to cut it.
– Go back to work! – Cut what?
– Your jacket. My jacket? – Be careful.
– I know, hang on. Now. What the hell? What’s wrong with you? – What are you doing?
– Wave to us. He fixed it! Good job, butcher! The butcher fixed my hand. Get out! Police Ambulance He did the right thing. The right thing, Tamara?
What if it was a fracture? Then we had to take him for an x-ray. Why?
He went back already. He broke his hand, and hit me on the head. Just fair warning,
I won’t be defending you, Sergey. Let’s go, ladies and gentlemen. We won’t go anywhere. Why so? I officially declare, that the paramedic provided
a qualified medical treatment, he didn’t overstep his competence,
the patient went back to work. Captain. Go away. Mockery. Get out! You received the next call. People are waiting, I have an order,
you’ll follow me, let’s go. What now? It’s a medical emergency. Let’s go. Do you know him? Is it the General again? Your job is to follow my car
and not confuse the gas with the brakes. – Hello.
– Hello. Something like that. – Where is he?
– Raphailovich, In the kitchen. His ulcer…
I mean his wife came to treat his ulcers. We’re an hour and a half late,
why are we here? Follow me. Come in. One more. Hello. What is your complaint? Of the harsh reality. Katya, leave it.
I’ll finish it later. He’s fine. Who here needs medical attention? Come here. She needs attention.
She saw the bodies, she’s in shock. Two dead bodies. The owner of the apartment
is a popular blogger, oppositionist, Mikhail Bayer.
The second one is unknown. What do you think? I’m just a paramedic. – Goodbye, finish your porridge.
– Sure, bye. Why did you call me again? I’ve been an investigator for 25 years. Not so talented, but experienced. We’ve been trying to find something
at general’s for three hours, but you came and solved it in two minutes. – Feel offended?
– In a way. I want you too look, and use your mind or talent. Then you may tell me
you’re not ready to answer. I’ll tell you right now. I’m not ready to answer. Don’t rush, you’re not our national football team, you should try at least. No injections,
we need to run a blood test first. – Look, I don’t know your name…
– Major Romashko Ivan Raphailovich. Major, we are emergency doctors,
we got a lot of calls. We’re almost done. Will you help us? You need help?
Okay, I’ll help you. It looks like
the owner knew the criminal, he went through this door. Okay, you may go. otherwise, how could he enter so easily,
if the owner himself, did’nt open the door for him? They went into the living room, then they drank, see the glass? Then the criminal took out a pistol. What kind? What? What kind of pistol? There was no pistol. He was shot with a hunting rifle. Good job, how do you know? First, the shells. Second, the size of the wound,
no exit wound, he got shot with buckshot. One of them lies on his back, legs are relaxed. The other one looks like he tripped, the diameter of the wound is smaller, that means he was shot
from a closer distance. I think the killer stood here. Okay, motive? Any motive, let’s say robbery.
These dolls in the drawer. That’s right, one is missing. There’s a mark in the dust.
It costs a lot, it’s handmade. Also there should be 10 plates not 5. – For these baubles?
– They might kill for a pack of matches. Major, can we take our paramedic, and continue to fulfil our duty. – We save human lives.
– That’s right. Mitya, take the doctors to their car, and notify their supervisors that
we’re holding them for investigation. – What?
– What investigation? Grab your things. Also, check the maid’s. Wait. Mr. Romashko, – I’ve already told you…
– I want to introduce you to someone. Vdovin Alexandr Yurievich, born in 1965. Afghan war invalid. Unemployed,
living on a disability pension. You told me you sing songs
near metro stations. I do. I sing with the guys,
we cheer people up, is it forbidden? No, continue. I live on the floor below. I had excellent relations with Misha. Exelent, you know. I used to come by, we would drink sometimes. I sang my songs to him. He liked it. Although, he’s Jewish, but… When did you see him last? Today. I rolled to him.
I was in the mood for singing and drinking. Was there someone else? No, I didn’t see anyone. – Continue.
– Who is this? He’s a paramedic, from the ambulance. Brother, tell them I’m stressed.
I lost a friend! I need a drink. – Don’t push me…
– Stop it, continue. Then I rolled to the metro station,
sang with the guys. People gave us some coins. We did not beg, we sing songs.
About Afgan, army, friends we lost. If he shot, the wheel chair
would have rolled back leaving a mark. If he put it on breaks, it would have flipped over. How would he shot the second time then?
Lying on the floor? Anyway, The gun hang too high for a man
with paralyzed legs to grab it. You’re right. Then why did you include him
in the suspect pool? It’s because I was here
fighting the killer, when the police came. What are you doing here? – What are you doing?
– It’s okay. What is your name, brother? – Sergey.
– Sergey. I liked him right away. When I got off the elevator
I heard screams: “They killed him!” I went back to the elevator,
it was stuck. I rolled upstairs, and saw his maid Lena,
she was scared, out of her mind.
And this whoopsie… What whoopsie? He means a blue guy? Brother, berets are blue,
this guy is a whoopsie! He stood over them waving, the rifle around. I’m experienced, I knew right away that he dropped the act
when Lena came in. He could have killed us! I grabbed him, got the rifle away from him. By the way, Major, keep in mind
that there may be, my fingerprints on it. I began to choke this damn whoopsie
for Misha, for everything. Then the police came in, they hit me in the ribs. I don’t blame them,
but they never gave me a drink, Sergey! Why not? – Did you take his blood already?
– Yes, sir. Okay, take him to the office
and give him the flask. – Take it.
– Where is Leonid? In the blue room. I head him blaming me. I wasn’t waving the rifle. It was on Mikhail Alexandrovich’s body,
I picked it up. Then this guy rolled in, he asked to give him the rifle, and pointed it at me.
I wasn’t waving it! Leonid, start from the beginning. – You met Lena downstairs.
– Yes. We met at the door. She told me, Mikhail Alexandrovich isn’t home,
that she rang but no one answered. – Does she have her own keys?
– She does. Maybe she lost them, I don’t know. In fact, she’s… It doesn’t matter. It does, continue. – I don’t want to accuse anyone.
– You don’t, just tell us. She’s so, erratic. – And careless.
– Do you like her? Who? Lena. May I continue? We came upstairs
and began to ring the doorbell. Lena wanted to wait for him outside,
I refused. I felt there was something wrong. Why did you feel that way? You see, Mikhail Alexandrovich Boyer
was exceptional, he is an extraordinary man. If he said that the meeting is at 10 A.M
then it’s at 10 A.M. He was running like clockwork. The appointment was at 10 A.M? – Yes.
– Wait. Security received a signal at 10:20 A.M. – It is fixed.
– I was late. He was exceptional,
but I’m not. Are you his secretary or assistant? Both. He was so efficient, so intelligent, so hardworking, he could have moved the world
like Achilles. Like who? Like Archimedes. – Of course.
– That’s an interesting slip. Continue. He was the brightest man
in our politics, he was cutting a window not only to Europe,
but to the world. Not about him. You went in, what’s next? We came in, Lena was behind me. Then she suddenly stopped, I told her
to call security to turn the alarm off. It was like she knew. No. Don’t look at me like that, I mean women are very sensitive. So you felt like Lena, – knew what happened, right?
– No. She was just a bit confused. I called security myself, dialed the number, but Lena took the phone
and told me to go in. I came in. They killed him. They killed him! It’s okay. Then came this slob and the police. Who was killed? – One of them is Byer.
– Boyer! Mikhail Alexandrovich Boyer! Okay, Boyer. Who is the other one? I don’t know, I said I don’t know. I can say this again.
I don’t know! How’s that? – You’re his assistant, his right hand.
– I wonder, too! I knew everyone, but I don’t know this guy! Maybe he wanted me to meet this guy? Maybe it was someone in hiding? Maybe it’s one, of the true revolutionaries. But you do like Lena. Stop! It’s expensive. Go away, I’m grieving. Do you like this man? Leonid? Don’t make me laugh,
he’s not a man. You didn’t like Boyer, but you slept with him. Did the cripple tell you? Don’t listen to him, this beggar hates everyone. Was he friends with Boyer? This cripple and Mikhail Alexandrovich? – They argued constantly.
– Why? Because of the noise. Mikhail Alexandrovich works nights,
but he drinks and screams until 5 A.M., and sleeps half the day. And God forbid I begin vacuuming,
he starts banging down the door. – Did he do that today?
– I don’t know. The door was closed when I came. But you spent the night here. Stop it, mister. It won’t work. A professional athlete.
What kind of sports? Handball, first category, why? Nothing, nice hairpin. So? You took it, from under a pillow,
when the doctor turned away. My God. I felt so bad, I lay down and then I took it out. Girls always put hairpins under pillows,
just so you know. You also knew
that Boyer was working until 3 A.M. He told me himself, I never checked. – Who turned on the washing machine?
– Probably Mikhail Alexandrovich. I’m here only on Tuesdays and Saturdays. So why are you here? He promised me
to pay my salary for the month. But he was killed. Why didn’t you come inside, when you rang the doorbell, and no one answered? – Do you have keys?
– I do. They are in my bag. Why’d I go in?
Who’d pay me? Leonid told us, that you didn’t want to go in, and call security as if you… Look. Look. When I came in I felt a sour smell. It smelled like… sulfur. I thought that… Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those,
but when I rang the doorbell, I heard something like… Sounded like a bat. There are lots of them in Tiraspol. And this smell of sulfur. I got scared. It’s the washing machine. Men’s socks, black plaid men’s boxers. Blue plaid men’s boxers. – My God.
– Jeans. Blue classic. One, black striped shirt. Two handkerchiefs. Maximum washing cycle is two
and a half hours, that means it wasn’t turned on, until after 10 A.M. You found the bodies, at 10:20 A.M., right Lena? Oh my God. Women’s bathrobe. Pink. Who turned on the machine? Only a man can wash a bathrobe
with jeans. It will be ruined. Someone in a hurry. Who’s bathrobe is that? Mikhail Alexandrovich’s wife. I’ve never seen her. – They divorced years ago.
– Why would someone, wash his ex wife’s bathrobe? I saw Mikhail Alexandrovich
wearing this bathrobe. Don’t ask me why, but he did.
Ask Leonid. What’s that? A hairpin, mine is exactly the same. – Mikhail Alexandrovich gave it to me.
– Lena, I’ll send this hairpin, and this bathrobe to the lab. There is a hair on it,
I’m sure we’ll find blood stains on it. Bood doesn’t come off that easy. Did you start the machine? My dear, Mikhail Alexandrovich paid me
two thousand dollars a month. Why would I kill him? Well. We’ve interviewed everyone. What do you think? What made you think
that it was one of them? Well, the bat, she told us about is a good story, but it’s only good, for cheap crime fiction books. Did you see the doorman? He’s an old, near-sighted man, but he wouldn’t have missed a bat. – This is the only stranger man since 9 A.M.
– What about neighbors? There are, only five residential apartments, in the stairwell. This house is not cheap
and it’s residents are not cheap as well. – How did our Afghan end up here?
– His father was a big academician, from Ministry of Medium Machine-Building. It’s like a civil Field Marshal. Okay. You’re a talented guy,
but a miracle didn’t happen this time. You may go. Go and save lives, paramedic Sergey. I’d like to clarify, one thing. I’ll put you in a cell. Ivan Raphailovich.
My beautiful Elena! Come here. Bring her here. You asked me to check it, I did. Sit, it’ll be interesting. Elena, don’t be afraid, they are not scary anymore. Elena, Light of my life, sweetheart, the joy of my life! I want to show you something. It’s funny, right? This is so much fun. Where do you think, – I found it?
– At her rented apartment. That’s not all. Okay, where is it? Come on, the miracle of the 21st century,
help me. Do you recognize it? The funny thing is that
I saw the exact same plates, in the kitchen. Lena, if you don’t believe me,
we can check the design. Lovely spoons! Not of nickel silver. Made of the real silver. Lena lives, in a museum of stolen property. I knew it! I felt it! Lena, you’re a, – dishonorable thief!
– Leonid, calm down. Lena. Here is the motive,
but you told me about two thousand dollars. Yes, why would I shoot him? I prepared meals for him, at my place! I might have used poison, instead of the rifle. Could buy at the pharmacy… Calm down! Sit down! You told me you were in love with him,
that you won’t leave him! Calm down. You’re a monster, Lena! Calm down! He gave me all these things,
he was kind! Come on, confess. We found blood on the bathrobe
and hair on the hairpin. – Really?
– Yes. Quiet!
That’s it. I’ll make a full confession.
I was here. We slept with Misha,
we were doing it until morning. Oh my God! Then suddenly, “Boom!”
I woke up. And again, “Boom!” I stood up, put on the bathrobe,
and called Misha. I came out of the bedroom, and heard this sound from the hallway. I’m not lying, it’s true! And the door closed silently.
I came here. They are dead. They are dead. I came to Misha.
Oh my God! Then I came to this man. Oh my God! Then I saw that I’m covered in blood. In Blood! I threw the bathrobe
into the washing machineand ran away. And I met Leonid!
Oh my God! Dear God! That’s it. – Here we go.
– What’s that? PZO-15. Portable recorder. I knew he’s from the agency,
his face shows that, he came to recruit him! They killed Mikhail Alexandrovich! The agency killed him! You came here at the appointed hour,
did he agree to be recruited? – No, it can’t be!
– Sit down. No, he was not this kind of person! And when you realized that
he was this kid of person, you went for a rifle,
screaming “Scoundrel! Judas!” No, it can’t be, he couldn’t do that! You took the rifle off the wall
and killed him screaming, “You have no place among us!” No! My battle flask, it saved my life. Sorry, I have people waiting for me,
can you help me? – Of course, brother.
– Look. – Do you have a fire escape here?
– Yes, to the left of the kitchen. Is it possible
to climb into an apartment? Come on! It’s impossible! I tried it once when I was a kid. I was a master of sports… Okay. – Thank you.
– What? Very good. Stop. So many people. Check him. Papers, please. Hello. – Hello, Major Romashko.
– Hello, Colonel Andreev. How’s work going? Not bad, it was better before you came. I hope a criminal was found,
convicted, and jailed. It was headed that way. – Sergey.
– One moment. Ivan Raphailovich, may I speak to you? – Is he yours?
– No, some random guy. He’s a paramedic from our team. Boris. Pull up this paramedic. Follow me. Major Romashko, our officer was killed here,
why didn’t you tell us right away? We found out, couple minutes ago. Why are you investigating the murder
of a well-known political… Colonel Andreev, I’ll mug you off
in frontof your officers again, you’ll be mad at me. Lezhnev Sergey Mikhailovich What have you got for me? Mitya Khokhotun, tell Andreev. Colonel, we have two suspects: The maid
and the assistant of late Boyer. They didn’t let us finish. I thought you’d surprise me,
I love surprises. It doesn’t matter. It’s like school,
we just have to solve a math problem. Did you solve it? Are you going to say something? – Not anymore.
– Why? They took away your case. What if, an innocent person goes to jail? That’s not on me, and not on you. Now you really surprised me. – There’s one more, Colonel.
– Bring him here. – Do you want to question him as well?
– I do. So, lovebirds, I don’t know what you think, but I think you did it together. This is a provocation. This is a premediated murder, committed by a prior conspiracy
among a group of persons. You decided to change a lover, right? You decided to become the head
of your oppositional sewer, right? Good job. You did well. You’re looking at 15 years to life
in prison. Here is what happened. This unknown, member of the agency came here
to recruit Mikhail Boyer. Major, can’t you see I’m working? Mikhail Boyer knew
that he might be dangerous, and called Leonid,
but Leonid was late. The tension increased,
they were screaming at each other. It woke up, hangover and handicapped Vdovin, who broke into the apartment
and screamed, that they are distressing him. Mikhail said something to Vdovin. What did he say? Look, for a disabled person,
who hasn’t walked for the past 25 years, his leg muscles are very strong. Too strong.
And reflexes are great. The things you do, for a good pension. Get up, Vdovin. He was so offended
by Boyer’s words, he stood up, took the rifle off the wall,
and pointed, at them. He cocked the triggers,
he didn’t know, that it was loaded. – Or did you, Vdovin?
– I didn’t know. And the rifle went off. The second one, got scared, he moved. It was a reflex. And then you heard his maid’s voice. Misha? He would have killed her too
to cover his tracks, but luckily there is only two shells
in the rifle. He didn’t remove his fingerprints
from the rifle. That’s why he came back. Am I right, Vdovin?
You was pushing your wheel chair. The wheels, you should oil them. Vdovin, what did Boyer say? That I can go and screw myself,
that I’m a scum. My father was an academic, understand? When the General found out
that documents were missing, he decided to kill himself. He took a gun and boom!
Heart attack. They called our team. The house was full of cops, dogs, forensics. Sergey asked them what happened, they told him to go, and save the General. Then this Major came to him, he has this funny surname. Major Romashko. Yes, Romashko. He asked his opinion. We heard it. What’s next? Where are the documents? – His nephew stole them.
– Why? He wanted to take his apartment. He wanted the General to kill himself, cose he was the only heir. If Sergey didn’t ask Major, to search, his nephew’s apartment, they’d have never thought of it. I went with them, the apartment, was fantastic, right Sergey? Don’t watch the road, just talk to us. Now I see why they kicked you off. Where are you going?
There’s a red light, turn the siren on! I don’t like these loud noises. Rita, I put the cakes on the table,
may I go after I finish this? Yes, see you. See you tomorrow. May I take it? Thank you, goodbye. This morning I, was rude. I came to apologize. Why?
I scared you. Many people are afraid of fire. I’m sorry, did I say something wrong? No, just… I just came to apologize. By the way, here is your change, you left too much tis morning. Yes, it happens.
