bomb planter likes riddles

We are looking for a movie (in german tv ~2000-2008) where the plot goes as follows:
They get a phone call, saying there is a bomb in a building. They go and try to defuse it,
one recognizes that its a trap and manages to escape, his partner dies.
Afterwards, he wants revenge and the search begins. The bomber is an old man and has similarities with
Anthony Hopkins, white hair, has a missing finger, but not sure which one.
He makes phone calls to the fbi/police/swat (not sure) and talks in riddles
where the bomb is planted. If they don’t find it, the bomb blows up.
So its a bomb planting spree…

My girlfriend also thinks that Jeff Daniels died in the beginning of the movie..

We searched pretty much the whole web, looked at “bestsimiliar”, googled the plots, …
Its not speed, its not blown away, its not Die Hard…
Can anyone help? 😀

  1. Speed (1994)

    Dennis Hopper is the bomber and is missing a finger. He plants a bomb in an elevator of a tall building at the beginning. Jeff Daniels dies about the midpoint of the movie (just after realizing its a trap.)

    I think you covered just about every subplot, but forgot the main plot, lol
