"Helmut Husmann is someone who has seen it all, the good and the bad. He was a narcotics officer, neighbourhood cop and motorbike cop. Now I'm the oldest on the force, a guy with a lot of experience and a big heart."
On my way home to beautiful Pomerania, I managed to brake at the last moment when a yellow-bellied toad crossed the road. I was sitting in the car with my family, saw the little creature and managed to stop in front of it at the last moment.
I brought it to my house and after the children and my wife had examined the little yellow animal, I just had to drive it to a pond and rescue it back into the wild. Before I could throw the little toad into the water, I looked at it and I talked to it. "Little frog. I'm not going to kiss you, but I saved your life and I'd be very happy if the phone rang tomorrow and I got the part in the metropolitan district."
Grinning, I put the creature in the water and it immediately started making strange noises. It wasn't a croaking sound like you'd imagine a frog would make, more of a ... owl.
And believe it or not, the next day Claudia Thieme (producer of Großstadtrevier) called me and I had the part.
Thank you dear little Unke. :-)
