Heinz Baumann is dead: In “Adelheid and her murderers” he played the idiotic chief inspector
In “Adelheid and her Mörder” Baumann played the somewhat goofy chief inspector Ewald Strobel alongside Evelyn Hamann, who was only able to solve his cases with the help of his resourceful secretary Adelheid.
Both series became huge successes. Baumann was regularly seen in productions well into the 2000s.
Baumann had a daughter with the comedian Beatrice Richter in 1978, Judith Richter, who also became an actress and is known for numerous TV productions. Baumann turned 95 on February 12.
