"Tatort" today from Saarbrücken: Huge

The new "crime scene" from Saarland does not skimp on violence.

"The Cold of the Earth" is still worth seeing.

Our "Tatort" review.

Jörg Hartmann, who plays the Dortmund "Tatort" inspector Peter Faber, said it correctly in our recent interview: Many crime fans like to watch the episodes from the pot because they tell the stories horizontally, thoughts and events from the Take up the life of the commissioners again and again and spin them on.

(Read here: Our entire interview with Jörg Hartmann.) The colleagues from Saarland have also adopted this principle - and in the most recent episode that was broadcast yesterday (title: "Die Kälte der Erde"), it works once again wonderful.

The case alone weakens somewhat.

The past of Holzer and Schürks plays a role again

The investigators have known each other since they were children, and even though they haven't seen each other for years, the bond has remained.

Not least because Leo Bäume (Vladimir Burlakov) put Adam Schürk's (Daniel Sträßer) father into a coma when he witnessed his son being beaten black and blue.

The father is now dead, but his “inheritance” is giving son Adam a hard time.

Also and especially in this episode.

Because: Adam hoards a sports bag at home with millions in loot from his father's bank robbery - and not only doesn't tell his colleague and friend Hoelz about the existence of the money, but also that he was mugged at home because of it.

Investigators hit a wall of silence

But who even knows about coal?

This is where the current case literally comes into play.

After a football game between Kaiserslautern and Saarbrücken (derby!), enemy hooligans from the two clubs meet for the so-called third half, a “field match”, as they call it.

Means: Dozens of men and a few women fight each other with fists.

Like animals, they attack each other.

Sheer violence breaks ground, completely unleashed.

Images that are actually hard to bear.

In the emergency room, the seriously injured Andreas Schneider (Nils Bannert) dies – not as a result of being beaten, but because someone unerringly rammed a knife into his femoral artery.

During their investigation, Hooligans and Schürk first encounter a wall of silence (hooligans are obviously keeping their hands on the "cops" together) and then immerse themselves in a world of people for whom violence seems to be normal behavior.

People who have never learned to look for answers to life's questions other than by hitting them.

Unfortunately, Melanie Waelde (script) and Kerstin Polte (director) don't really look for the why here.

Where does this hate come from?

This boundless rage?

Maybe you can't explain it, the evil in people.

But you could have delved a little deeper into these broken characters.

What unites everyone and everything in this thriller: without trust, everything is ultimately nothing.
