What should you do to land yourself in prison? Commit a murder, alcoholic Herman surmises. And if that does not work: a second murder. But what if the police does not suspect him?
You could call Herman a willy-nilly serial killer. As an alcoholic, he needs professional help, but due to bureaucratic wrangling he does not get any. Then, he realises he will have to land himself in jail, because there they will surely take better care of him. So he kills a local criminal. But the police does not believe his confession, so he has to find a second victim. In this mix of comedy and thriller, the absurdist theme has been elaborated in deadpan style.
