importing PDF with author, title in filename


I have got a problem with importing pdf books to calibre.
Filename: Perry Rhodan 1100 - William Voltz - Der Frostrubin.pdf
rex expresion:
(?P<series>[Perry Rhodan]+) (?P<series_index>[0-9]*) - (?P<author>[^_-]+) - (?P<title>[^_-]+)

Everything looks ok when I test it at the settings.
Title: Der Frostrubin
Author: William Volz
series: Perry Rhodan
Series indes: 1100

But when I start to import my books, it looks like:
Title: Perry Rhodan 1100 - William Voltz - Der Frostrubin
Author: NoMam

After some tests, I had the idea, that it could happen because of the .pdf, so I tested in the settings screen:
Perry Rhodan 1100 - William Voltz - Der Frostrubin

and the output of Calibre was:
Author: unknown
Title, series...: no Math

Im Using Windows 7 with Calibre 0.7.45, it looks like calibre doesnt get the .pdf. How can I fix the rex expresion, that it will work or how could I solve my problem?

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! But pleas keep your sentences easy, as you can see, Im not a native english speaker! :-)
