Michael (Peter Vogel) and his fiancée Barbara (Karin Dor) want to spend a romantic vacation together on a lonesome island off the coast of Italy - but once there, Michael can't think of anything else but fishing, which drives Barbara, who doesn't even like fish, nuts. At the same time, rich businessman Keyser (Heinz Erhardt) wants to get his daughter Marion (Ann Smyrner) together wtih his company's lawyer Thomas (Harald Juhnke), but Thomas totally lacks natural charm and initiative - so Keyser plans a vacation at a hotel in Italy where they are to "bump" into Thomas by coincidence. Only Marion has other plans, so the three of them end up making a camping trip - to the very island Michael and Barbara are at. When they arrive, Michael and Barbara have just have such a big row that she's running away enraged - to stumble upon Keyser and company, and to them she claims Michael is only a fleeting acquaintance who's gotten fresh towards her. Keyser and company offer her abode and protection, much to the dismay of Michael who then travels back to the mainland to engage singer Bob Stuart (Gus Backus) and his band to come to the island dressed up as ghost and give Barbara and the others a mighty good scare. Thing is, Gina (Trude Herr), resolute wife of the alcoholic chief of police (Raoul Retzer), has Sicilian blood in her veins, and she sends Bob Stuart to a different island while sending a gang of crooks to Michael's island, and they rob Keyser and company blind and destroy their and even Michael's boat, so much so that Barbara, Keyser, Marion and Thomas all seek abode in Michael's cottage. Soon enouch, Barbara is fed up that Marion's always flirting with Michael, and more so that he flirts back, while Thomas feels outmatched by Michael, so one night they fix a boat and travel to the mainland - where they have some trouble telling the chief of police what has happened, but ultimately he sends a boat to pick up Michael and the others - and all are sent to jail ... but this is when Thomas has his time to shine, as as a lawyer, he makes a compassionate speech that has them all out in no time, and thus Marion finally falls for him, and for no reason at all (other than an overdue happy ending), Barbara forgives Michael everything and they live happily ever after - for at least another week ...

A framing story has Bill Ramsey play out his hit song, the titular Ohne Krimi geht die Mimi nie ins Bett, where he wants to go to sleep but his wife (Edith Hancke) keeps the light on all through the night as she wants to finish reading her crime novel ...


Even if the title suggests a krimi and it stars Karin Dor, then pretty much the female face of the genre, the film is much more of a romantic comedy, going through all the motions, hardly missing out on clichés, peppered with a handful of Schlager performances - and frankly, it's not a very remarkable film, not very funny, and apart from the title song the songs are all very unremarkable ... but watching it through the glasses of nostalgia, it has a totally out-of-date ring to it that's at the very least entertaining - if for all the wrong reasons.
