Hamburg the Beautiful!
18 April 2004 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Everyone who has ever been to Hamburg should watch this series. The pictures, the stories and the characters, both main and supporting, are a big, loving homage to this great city.

In the 80s, when the series started, it had a completely different message. There was this tough but still female police officer who was there to show people that women could do proper police work, too. Mareike Carriere did a good job and her character developed over the time and became a really interesting person. When she finally quit it was a huge loss.

The original male officer had been Arthur Brauss, a somewhat grumpy, older, experienced officer who suddenly had to deal with that young, vivacious woman at his side. Well, they had quarrels, but they came to an arrangement with each other of course over the years.

He was followed by Jan Fedder, who then became the big star of this series with his rough charm and broad Hamburg accent. He was the real stuff, the typical "Hamburger Jung" (boy from Hamburg) who grew up between harbour and Reeperbahn and knows the city like the back of his hand.

Around that time the series slowly changed into what it is today: Funny, exciting, picturesque, dark, surprising and thoroughly dependable. You get what you bargained for with that series. In short: it is simply "Hamburgisch".

There is only one small thing, you have to know: If you don't fall in love with Hamburg while watching that series, you are a heartless fool.
