Can you explain in english please. It is a bit difficult to understand what you are saying.

I am no expert, however ....
Sounds similar to the problem I had the other week.
Was a blown injector seal. ECU detects lack of pressure in the system and shuts down the engine.

Can you smell anything, like hot diesel, and see fumes ?

I think failed seals are common enough. But I'd say failed injectors are not.

I get this error message on my E320 CDi, it is due to a dirty/blocked fuel filter, easy fixed and expected since I'm running on 100% Biodiesel at 15pence a litre. Car has run well on Bio fuel for 2 years and costs about 9 pounds to fill it up!
