Storyline

Stephan Derrick is "Oberinspektor" at the Munich police. Together with his assistant Harry Klein he has to solve murder cases. This series is more based on psychological methods to find out who was the murderer, than on action scenes and car chases. Derrick prefers to talk to people and learn more about their personalities. Therefor the telephone is a very important instrument to him. Written by Peter W. Simeon <simeon@imdb.com>

Best Cops Show
28 December 2000 | by (Hamilton, New ZEaland) – See all my reviews

My wife and I watched this show in Melbourne, Australia. We were absolutely hooked by not only the believable plots but by the excellent acting by Derrick and his offsider. We found it an interesting window into Germany, its culture and over time became quite familiar with Munich and its surrounds.

The show was shown in Australia by the quite excellent SBS and was shown without ads. The fact that it was sub-titled didn't matter at all... it was compulsive viewing over many series.

If I was to rate this series, it would have to be 9 out of 10.
