Friedrich Dürrenmatt had not been happy to see the detective proven successful at the end the story, so he wrote the novel "Das
: Requiem auf den Kriminalroman" ("") from the previous film script. "Das
" differs from "Es geschah am hellichten Tag" by having the detective fail to identify the killer in the end because of the murderer's death in an auto accident. This failure ultimately leaves the detective a broken and witless old man.
Among the classics of Swiss German literature are Jeremias Gotthelf (1797–1854) and Gottfried Keller (1819–1890). The undisputed giants of 20th century Swiss literature are Max Frisch (1911–91) and Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–90), whose repertoire includes "Die Physiker" (The Physicists) and "Das
" (), released in 2001 as a Hollywood film.
The Pledge (German: "Das
") is a crime novella by Swiss author Friedrich Dürrenmatt, published in 1958, after Dürrenmatt thought that his previous movie script, "Es geschah am hellichten Tag" ("It happened in broad daylight") did not have a realistic ending. That made-for-television story had demanded an ending in line with that of a typical detective story. Dürrenmatt, however, was a critic of that genre of literature, and thus he set out to write "Das
" as an expression of that criticism. Although it has been absent from some subsequent editions of the novella, the title of the original edition included the telling subtitle Requiem for the Detective Novel (German: "Requiem auf den Kriminalroman").
Agócs dialogues with earlier composers, including a homage to György Ligeti as the second movement of her quintet "Immutable Dreams" (2007). She employs Serialist techniques to re-imagine a Bach chorale in "
" (2004). Agócs performs her own works as a soprano soloist and collaborates with instrumentalists to develop distinct techniques and musical colors.

In the original film "Es geschah am hellichten Tag", the story was directly that of the Matthäi character, rather than being framed through its retelling by Dr. H., as in "Das
". At the end of the movie, Matthäi had demonstrated his concern for Annemarie by sending her and her mother away to safety before attempting to spring his final trap upon the murderer. The murderer arrived and was killed, thus vindicating Matthäi's persistence in pursuing the case and leading to a happy reunion with Annemarie at the story's conclusion.
There were three earlier film accounts of the White Rose resistance. The first film was financed by the Bavarian state government and released in the 1970s, entitled "Das
" ("The Promise"). In 1982, Percy Adlon's "Fünf letzte Tage" ("Five Last Days") presented Lena Stolze as Scholl in her last days from the point of view of her cellmate Else Gebel. In the same year, Stolze repeated the role in Michael Verhoeven's "Die Weiße Rose" ("The White Rose"). In an interview, Stolze said that playing the role was "an honour".

Fröbe was chosen to play the villain because producers Saltzman and Broccoli had seen his performance in a German thriller titled "Es geschah am hellichten Tag" ("It happened in broad daylight", 1958), based on the story "Das
" ("The Pledge") by Friedrich Dürrenmatt. In that film, Fröbe played a serial killer named Schrott, who kills children to vent his frustrations with his domineering wife. Broccoli and Saltzman had seen the movie and decided upon the "big bad German" for the role.

The meaning of the permanent prefixes does not have a real system; the alteration in meaning can be subtle or drastic. The prefixes "ver-", "be-" and "ge-" have several different meanings, although "ge-" is uncommon and often the root verb is no longer in existence. "be-" often makes a transitive verb from an intransitive verb. Verbs with "er-" tend to relate to creative processes, verbs with "ent-" usually describe processes of removing (as well as "emp-", an approximate equivalent to "ent-" except usually used for root verbs beginning with an "f"), and "zer-" is used for destructive actions. "Ver-" often describes some kind of extreme or excess of the root verb, although not in any systematic way: 'sprechen', for example means to 'speak', but '
', 'to promise' as in 'to give ones word' and 'fallen', meaning 'to fall' but 'verfallen', 'to decay' or 'to be ruined'.
The Promise (original title: "Das
") is a German documentary film directed by Marcus Vetter with Karin Steinberger. The film tells the crime story of the double murder of Derek and Nancy Haysom on 30 March 1985 in Lynchburg, Virginia. The film focuses on the two main protagonists Jens Söring, son of a German diplomat, and Elizabeth Haysom, the daughter of the murdered couple. Both were sentenced to life in prison. The film makes use of extensive original footage from press archives, as the two court cases were the first lawsuits to be broadcast nationwide on American television. In the film, these recordings from 1985 to 1990 are combined with scenes shot during the making of the film, including interviews with Jens Söring, witnesses, the investigators involved in the case, lawyers, prosecutors and journalists. In addition, extensive materials such as original crime scene photos and evidence, court transcripts, newspaper archives, love letters and diaries of the two main protagonists were evaluated in the film.
