In the summertime, the first only shows "crime scene" repetitions.

The original version of this text was first broadcast in December 2018.

The scenario:

Sleepless in the Black Forest.

A pair of lovers has been shot in the forest, a body on fire lies in a torch-burned hut.

Franziska Tobler (Eva Löbau) and her temporary colleague Luka Weber (Carlo Ljubek), who haven't gotten to bed properly for days, struggle through two cases in which one does not seem to match the other.

Your most important witness is a law student (Thomas Prenn) who, like in a fever, prays down whole textbooks, but repeatedly overslept his most important exam dates.

The highlight:

This “crime scene” changes levels of perception again and again and plays with the viewer's viewing habits by lifting flashbacks and flashbacks from the usual rhythm of the classic television thriller.

A demanding, in the end quite fulfilling experience.

The picture:

A normal person sits in his car in front of his own house and eats a cheese sandwich from a Tupperware jar, while his wife works as a prostitute at home.

Sex work in the petty bourgeois Black Forest variant.

When the inspectors asked him why he was sitting in the car, the man replied: "You know what's always going on with us on Saturday!"

The saying:

“These are stressed-out students who need to let off steam.

They are all so focused on performance.

We just got drunk back then, «said investigator Weber about the stuffy, exhausted student environment of their main witness.

The song:

"Gianna" by Wolfgang Petry.

This penetratingly slippery hit echoes from the radio boxes when the tense student visits his parents.

Text excerpt: "Gianna, the car is also very small, I know a trick, huh huh huh, Gianna, Gianna, I press this button, then we sink back, oh yes." The song is mixed into the conversation and echoes in the next scene after.

The cackling voice of Wolfgang Petry in your head - of course you can tick it off quickly.

The review:

8 out of 10 points.

Despite a few unnecessary distractions in the plot: a strong, disturbing "crime scene" that turns the sacred rituals of detective crime on their heads.

The analysis:
