Unfortunately, HeR Interactive switched to a new game engine with this game and it appears to be much more prone to technical problems. Not sure how doing this improved the series at all, sadly. It also requires higher system specs and a lot of folks on laptops and on low-end computers either can't run the game at all or have slow loading/crashing issues.
Where did you get the game? Steam download? HeR Interactive download? Or a physical DVD? That is information that might be relevant when asking for a saved game. I don't have any, so we will just have to wait and see if anyone else does. Sorry this happened to you.
I just found a thread here on Steam
discussing the same problem. A couple people said they managed to get past the crash by changing everything in the Menu graphics settings to the lowest possible settings. Read through the whole thing, as there are a few other suggestions there as well - maybe one of them would work for you and get you past this point.
