Horst (Inspector Derrick) Tappert...the film is maybe "The devil came from Akasava" ?

Correct actor, Tubbytoast. That is indeed Horst Tappert. But the image is not from ...AKASAVA. That's a close guess. Try again! Thanks for your participation.

That's from "Sie tötete in Ekstase" / "She Killed in Ecstasy". Right?!

This image is from "Der Todesrächer von Soho" (aka "El muerto hace las maletas" aka "Death avenger"). By the way: Horst Tappert was (or maybe is; he is retired now)very popular in Germany, because of his long running TV series "Derrick", which was sold to many countries (but surely not to the US, I guess).

Yes, that is correct. I now have DER TODESRACHER.. on the German DVD with very good image quality. Thanks to Bruno. I'll be reviewing it here. No, Tappert is a virtual unknown to the general US public, outside of "cult" circles, and DERRICK was never broadcast here.

It's not from SHE KILLED ... but that's a good guess since Horst Tappert is also in that film from the same German production company, CCC. Thanks for your participation here, Rafael.

DERRICK was never dubbed in English? Krimi fans may know that many episodes were directed by Alfred Vohrer and feature familiar faces from the past.ALL the episodes up to a point were written by "Alex Berg".

Thanks for the DERRICK information, Deliria. I've never seen an episode. Welcome to the blog.
