Stanislas Dobschnik's father dies when Stanislas is seven years old. His distraught mother is later put into psychiatric care and Stanislas is left with a foster family but maintains an obsession with his ailing mother, sitting outside her window for extended periods of time. Stanislas has regular visits with a psychologist, Professor Olbek, who believes that Stanislas has been wrongfully convicted out of prejudice due to his profile. He has the investigation opened again and the conviction overturned. When Stanislas is released, Olbek recommends a job on the night shift at a morgue. Stanislas is pleased with the position because he does not like to be around people. It also allows him time to focus on his work as a serial killer. He photographs his victims and meticulously collects evidence such as hair and murder weapons in plastic bags.
