One of the first adventures of the "Ruhrpott-Rächer".
Schimanski is the most famous and popular cop of the "Tatort" series which has been running for the last 30 years or so. Horst Schimanski's rough manners and unorthodox methods made the character so popular and famous to this day. George's acting is without doubt another reason for Schimanski's fame. This episode, as the title suggests, is set in the seedy port area of Duisburg. Schimanski and Thanner are investigating the murder of a sailor. Soon they find out that there is much more behind the case than at first apparent on the surface. Quite a complicated story; it's also quite realistic in comparison to other police shows. The ongoing conflict between the rough Kommissar Schimanski and his colleague Thanner make this show quite amusing.
