Thomas Kundt is a crime scene cleaner. It erases the traces of violence, suicides and people abandoned or dead alone at home. He made it into a scenic program.

“The real crime scene cleaner” lives in a rural gem near Leipzig. The house on the outskirts of the village belonged to her grandmother, she operated a small farm there. There is an old circus wagon in the garden. Thomas Kundt, 42, has installed a sauna there. He transformed the old stable into a cozy kitchen with great attention to detail, including many found and collectibles as well as antiques. “My oasis,” says Kundt proudly, making a living erasing traces of violence and other human tragedies. All kinds of questions arise.
