Detective Forst (2024) s01e05 Episode Script

Episode 5

[faint, mysterious music playing]
[mysterious music
becomes slow and dramatic]
[fire roaring]
[man] Watch your step.
[people chattering]
[indistinct chatter]
[machine beeping]
Move back.
[slow, dramatic music continues]
- [patting on door]
- [siren blaring]
[music becomes quiet]
[music fades out]
So there's a top secret brothel
run by former Nazi collaborators
somewhere in the Tatras Mountains.
And the prophet Isaiah has taken
to murdering their descendants
and leaving coins for you
at the scene of the crime.
All because 30 years ago you two decided
to steal from the orphanage director.
I gotta say that's one crazy,
fucking story. What's the punch line?
Elijah, not Isaiah.
Listen, Forst.
[loud thud]
I've got two charred corpses to deal with!
We're gonna have more dead bodies
than tourists soon!
And you're telling me
about your childhood?
Do I look like a fuckin' therapist?
How about Adamiak?
- Dr. Adamiak, are you taking new patients?
- [tense music playing]
The bodies
One of them is Halina Sznajderman.
[Forst breathes deeply]
The other's her bodyguard.
Halina was seeking revenge
for what Łowotarski did to her mother.
[music becomes ominous
and then quiet and tense]
Mountain Remembrance was a front.
Listen, Forst.
- It's a renowned institution.
- [sniffs]
You have any evidence?
- It went up in smoke.
- Of course.
Halina made the mistake
of thinking she controlled Iwo Elijah.
It was the other way around.
And those coins?
From Elijah to me.
Elijah. Ghosts.
No one knows them.
No one has heard of them.
Except you.
Szrebska will confirm everything.
She might or she might not.
As it stands, she's in the hospital
drugged out of her mind.
- Look, am I under arrest or what?
- No.
But don't go anywhere.
[music fades out]
Adamiak, go see
if the Tatras are still there.
- What?
- Get the fuck out.
Oh. [clears throat]
Anyway, I gotta meet the prosecutor.
[door shuts]
You still haven't turned in
your service weapon.
[quiet, tense music playing]
I actually need to report
my service weapon as lost.
Get the fuck out.
At least give me a composite artist.
I'm not giving you shit!
[bangs door]
Get the fuck outta here, Forst!
Fucking hell!
[music becomes tense and dramatic]
[music becomes quiet]
- [wind blowing]
- [people chattering]
[men playing lively, folksy music]
[quiet tense, music playing]
[camera shutter clicks]
[tense, dramatic music playing]
So what do we know?
Like I told the detective earlier,
it's obviously arson.
The fire started in several places.
You want a portrait?
[Forst] Yeah, actually.
But not a caricature.
And definitely not me.
You won't find anything else here.
And are you sure about that?
We scoured every inch.
[tense, dramatic music continues]
Not so much hair. Yeah, like that.
[distant bird cawing]
The lips are pursed and thinner.
[camera shutter clicks]
[pencil sketching]
Got something!
[breathing deeply]
And twice that much for one more thing.
[music intensifies]
- [music stops]
- [faint, electrical humming]
[faint, tense music playing]
[music intensifies]
- Nine millimeter.
- [music stops]
I don't have to tell you
that's a very common caliber.
It doesn't mean it was our Glock.
His Glock. It's his fucking gun, not ours!
That son of a bitch has you all fooled.
Nina's acting like a lovesick teenager,
you feed his addiction,
and his boss treats him like a goddamn
- I do what?
- Ah, forget it.
I think we can all agree
that even if Forst
is some deranged serial killer,
he's not an idiot.
He wouldn't leave the murder weapon
right under our noses. He's being framed.
You hope that if you ignore ballistics,
your friend won't go to jail.
Only comparative
analysis can prove with certainty
that the shots came from Forst's gun.
Has he brainwashed
the both of you, for fuck's sake?
Can't believe a word he says!
He's a manipulator.
Would you shut it already, Adamiak!
[faint, mysterious music playing]
There's, uh, one more thing.
After the fire,
they did a routine blood test on Forst.
[exhaling] He was positive for heroin.
You gotta be fucking kidding me!
A junkie murderer.
He's got us in here arguing
while he's out scouting his next victim.
[music becomes dramatic]
[door opens and closes]
[music stops]
Some guy left a delivery for Osica
while you were gone.
- [electronic beeps]
- And something for you from ballistics.
- [people chattering]
- [telephone ringing]
[quiet, ominous music playing]
[music becomes dramatic]
I fucking knew it.
Boss! It's Forst!
[music intensifies]
- [siren blaring]
- [music stops]
871 MASL
[quiet, moody music playing]
[Forst exhales deeply]
I will find him. I swear.
- [dramatic action music playing]
- Yeah, we're on our way.
Keep an eye on him,
but by no means try to stop him.
The who?
No, security guards don't stand a chance.
- I told you! Bullets came from his gun?
- [Edmond] I don't wanna hear it. Shut it.
Ballistics don't lie.
Forst shot those people.
- I told you, the bastard can't be trusted.
- Just drive, let me think!
Yes sir. Think how I'm right.
[dramatic action music continues]
[siren blaring]
[music stops]
You'll be safe here.
[quiet, moody music playing]
"You'll be safe here."
That's what you said.
Yes, I did. And you are.
You're in one piece.
Elijah shot Halina
and her bodyguard with my gun.
If he left it for them to find,
they'll have to take a closer look at me.
Detain me.
In the meantime,
he'll be free to kill again.
And I can't let him do that.
You'll have police protection 24-7.
No one will come hurt you here.
[quiet, moody music continues]
I'm sorry, Olga.
[dramatic action music playing]
Come on.
Which way to ICU?
- [woman] Fourth floor.
- Thanks.
Adamiak, you take the stairs,
I'll take the elevator.
If anything happens, you'll cut him off.
[dramatic action music continues]
- [elevator bell dings]
- [music stops]
- [sniffs and sighs]
- [tense music playing]
[babies crying]
[tense music becomes dramatic]
[music becomes quiet and tense]
This is our floor.
[elevator bell dings]
[music intensifies]
- Forst! Wait! Forst! Hold it!
- [dramatic action music playing]
Forst, get back here, goddammit!
Forst! Stop!
- Move it!
- [woman screams]
- Forst!
- [grunts]
Don't move!
- [music becomes quiet and tense]
- [breathing deeply]
Fuck, really?
I need you to put your hands
above your head.
[Forst sighs]
Edmund, you know
we won't catch him by the book.
I can break rules you're not allowed to.
[tense music becomes dramatic]
Would you actually have shot me
if I hadn't stopped?
We do what we have to do.
[Edmund grunts]
You're too old for this, Edmund.
[suspenseful music playing]
Doesn't mean I can let things slide.
We do what we have to do?
That's all we do.
[both groaning]
[music intensifies]
- [loud gun blast]
- Fuck!
[dramatic action music playing]
[Edmund screams]
[Edmund groans and screams]
Police! Get on the ground!
- [gun blast]
- [grunts]
- Inspector!
- [groaning]
Go after that bastard, Adamiak!
- [breathing in and groaning]
- [music stops]
- [machinery hissing]
- [tense music playing]
[both grunt]
Adamiak, listen to me.
In the mountains, we solve
our issues with our bare hands.
Come on.
[tense, dramatic music playing]
[both grunting]
[steam hissing]
[Forst gasps]
[Adamiak growls]
[Adamiak gasps and chokes]
[Adamiak gasping]
[Adamiak gasps]
[Adamiak choking]
- [Adamiak goes silent]

["My Lake" by Magda Kluz playing]
[boy] Daddy, do you know how
tall the Giewont peak is?
1198 MASL
[Gjord] 1909 meters.
[girl] And the Kasprowy Wierch?
[Gjord] 1988.
[boy] And the Żabi Koń?
- [Gjord] 2091.
- [dishes clinking]
[girl] Oh! I bet you won't get this one!
The Kopa Kondracka.
[Gjord] 2002?
[girl] Hm.
Look. Dad took me here,
to Kasprowy Wierch.
- Sorry, milk delivery's late.
- [Gjord] That's okay.
- [girl] See over here?
- [Gjord] I take it black.
- [boy] Mm-hm.
- [Gjord] Do you have sugar, though?
[girl] We took a cable car to get there.
[Agata clears her throat]
[sugar jar clinks]
[Gjord] And a spoon.
[girl] And then he took me here.
Come on. I wanna show you something.
[spoon clatters]
[Agata] Anything else?
[girl] See that mountain?
[Gjord] Would you like to sit with us?
[girl] That's where we went with Dad.
You remember that, right?
[boy] Of course.
[song continues]
[girl] I'm not sure.
What is it with people like you?
You show up here to get a break
from your concrete jungle.
With your measly city lungs full of smog
and your hearts
full of pain and suffering.
Yet you treat the locals
like those damn shepherds' axes
you buy as souvenirs
then dump in a closet to forget about.
After all, you're headed home tomorrow.
Or what you think home means.
Because all you can do
is run toward the precipice.
- And when you stand at the edge
- [cup clinking]
you keep your eyes squeezed shut.
To make sure you don't accidentally
see something to make you wanna stay.
Anything but that.
I think your brutal truths
would be a lot more impactful
if you only shared them
with dumb tourists.
[song continues]
[quiet, tense music playing over song]
[song fades out]
[tense music fades out]
- [people chattering]
- [telephone ringing]
[woman chuckles]
So we keep it as simple as possible.
There's a warrant for Forst's arrest.
He's on the run,
and potentially armed and dangerous.
But he's not the Beast of Giewont.
Of course he isn't.
- This is a mistake.
- I'll introduce you to the vultures.
You'll want your full kit for this.
[cell phone ringing]
[Gjord] I can't take your call right now.
Please leave a message,
and I'll get back to you.
[beep on cell phone]
[people continue chattering]
[quiet, tense music playing]
[music continues]
[cell phone ringing]
[Gjord] I can't take your call right now.
Please leave a message,
and I'll get back to you.
[beep on cell phone]
[cell phone ringing]
[Gjord] I can't take your call right now.
Please leave a message,
and I'll get back to you.
- [beep on cell phone]
- [sobbing quietly]
[tense music continues]
[trash can clatters]
[gasps quietly]
[music becomes ominous]
[lipstick lid clicks]
[music becomes mysterious]
[music becomes ominous]
[moody, dramatic music playing]
[people shouting]
[Edmund] I can tell you
that we will be addressing reports
of gunfire at the hospital, of course.
Also, the investigation
into the recent murders
which is being led by my colleague,
Detective Adamiak.
We'll be turning things over
to Prosecutor Wadryś-Hansen,
who will give you
the details on everything.
Prosecutor Wadryś-Hansen, everyone.
Thank you.
[moody, dramatic music continues]
- [inhaling]
- [camera shutter clicks]
As you heard from Inspector Osica,
there was an incident
at the hospital that resulted in gunfire.
His professionalism and modesty
prevented him from mentioning
that he was injured in the altercation
with the shooter who is now a fugitive.
Fortunately, his injuries
are not life-threatening.
As you can see, it's hard to keep
a true Goral away from his duties.
[people chuckle]
Now for the more difficult news.
Inspector Osica and his colleague
were attacked by the Beast of Giewont.
Wiktor Forst.
- [people shouting]
- [camera shutters clicking rapidly]
[man 1] Wasn't Forst in charge
of the investigation?
- [man 2] Was he working with anyone?
- [man 1] Does he have an accomplice?
- Forst
- [woman] Did he try to kidnap you too?
Forst spun a web of lies and deceit.
[tense, dramatic music playing]
He deceived his colleagues, his friends.
He was actually pretending to investigate
a case in which he was the prime suspect.
In spite of his suspension,
he was able to deflect suspicion,
hide evidence and clues
and cover his tracks.
[music becomes moody]
[camera shutters clicking]
Our intent is to have the Beast's face
on front pages everywhere.
I want his image shown
on all the evening news programs.
We need to flood all media,
both traditional and social,
with this crucial information.
We will do everything
in our power to stop him.
We will not rest
until we have captured the Beast.
We will not relent.
He's killed his last victim.
[people shouting]
[moody music continues]
Ladies and gentlemen,
I'm going to need you to settle down.
A spokesperson for the Police Department
will release
a detailed statement this evening.
I have nothing to add
[moody music continues]
[music stops]
What was that?
What the fuck was that?
Adamiak's hunch was right.
And you are a hero, Edmund.
[quiet, dramatic music playing]
Now all that's left
is to bring Forst back in.
- Understand?
- [scoffs softly]
[Gjord] I can't take your call right now.
Please leave a message,
and I'll get back to you.
[beep on cell phone]
[moody music playing]
- [tires screeching]
- [music intensifies]
[music fades out]
- [pounding and knocking]
- [Wadryś-Hansen] Karolina!
- Are you there? Open up!
- [Karolina] Coming. I'm coming.
- [Wadryś-Hansen] Open the door right now!
- [pounding]
- Where are the kids?
- In their room. I'm glad you're here.
Mr. Gjord was supposed
to be here three hours ago,
and I need to catch the last bus.
[panting] I'll give you money for a cab.
[Karolina] Thanks.
- Good night.
- [door opens]
[door shuts]
[child groans]
I'm here, sweetheart.
[girl] Why do you look so sad?
I'm not sad.
I just really missed you two.
Did you have a good day?
Karolina took us to go get ice cream.
It was a celebration.
Daddy said it was an important day,
so we could get
as many scoops as we wanted.
He told you it was an important day, huh?
You can ask him when he gets home.
[sucks teeth]
Sweet dreams.
[wind howling]
720 MASL
[mysterious violin music playing]
[glass taps on counter]
[Forst panting]
[mysterious violin music continues]
- [breathing deeply]
- [cell phone vibrates]
[music fades out]
[vibrating continues]
[vibrating stops]
- [heavy breathing on phone]
- Agata?
Iwo, she's done nothing to you.
Leave her alone!
[ominous music playing]
Do you hear me?!
- [Forst grunts angrily]
- [clattering]
[music fades out]
Are you there, sweetheart?
Oh, Jesus, Agata.
[woman whimpering and crying]
[quiet, tense music playing]
[whimpering and crying continue]
[woman groaning and panting]
[whimpering and crying continue]
- [taps key]
- [whimpering and crying stop]
[music intensifies]
[taps key]
[Iwo muttering indistinctly]
- [Agata sobbing]
- [music stops]
- [taps key]
- [video stops]
[quiet, moody music playing]
- [taps key]
- [Agata moaning]
- [taps key]
- [video stops]
[quiet, moody music continues]
- [taps key]
- [Agata sobbing and screaming]
Don't look at that.
You hear me?
- Leave it.
- [screaming] Where the fuck is Agata?
How would I know where she is, Edmund?
[gasping] What have you done?
It's not me.
Where's my daughter, motherfucker?
I know it's you!
- Where is she!
- [Forst gasps faintly]
I didn't do anything to her.
That asshole called me!
Using her phone. I came to see
if she was here. Look at the calls.
Who called you?
Huh? Iwo Elijah? Is Iwo Elijah
the fucker torturing my daughter?
- Yes.
- [gasps] What did he tell you?
[sobbing] What the fuck did he tell you?
- Nothing. He just moaned.
- [ominous music playing]
I'll fucking kill him.
I'll fucking kill him
and bury him in the woods.
[Edmund breathing heavily]
- She's alive.
- How the hell do you know that?
Because that bastard's obsessed with me
and needs Agata to reel me in!
He's manipulating me
through your daughter!
- Fucking pull yourself together, Edmund.
- [Edmund inhales deeply]
- Listen.
- [gasps faintly]
We have to work together.
I'll make a copy of the video,
and you give the laptop to Staszek,
let him check it out.
Staszek didn't come in to work.
And he didn't fucking
come in yesterday either.
He and the Rozwadowski
kid knew each other.
[quiet, dramatic music playing]
- What?
- Forget Staszek!
I don't give a shit about him!
I've got the entire fuckin' force on this!
But you left some
at the hospital, didn't you?
What the fuck
are you talking about? Of course not.
- You left Szrebska without protection?
- Asshole!
The one you should
be worried about is my daughter!
We need to worry about both!
[Edmund panting]
[both grunt]
- [Edmund moans faintly]
- [typing on keyboard]
I need to report Agata's abduction.
[quiet, dramatic music continues]
[music fades out]
- [ominous music playing]
- [shuddering]
- Mommy.
- [music fades out]
I know why you're crying.
It's 'cause you miss Daddy.
Paw-Paw will cheer you up.
He's a good listener. You can tell
him all your secrets and sadness.
Daddy tells Paw-Paw everything too.
[quiet, tense music playing]
- [Wadryś-Hansen breathes deeply]
[inhales deeply]
