Quick introduction to the life sentence in Germany based on Wikipedia:

The German constitution does not allow life sentences with pardon as the only way out. Early release is possible if the following conditions are met:

[*]15 years of the sentence have passed
[*]The prisioner is not a danger to the public
[*]The guilt is not grave enough to require the sentence to countinue (in practice especially grave guilt results in 23-25 years instead of 17-19)
[*]The lifer agrees

It's sad in some way that this guy decided to stay in prison, he probably can't give back anything to society in his lifetime.
