A real king
29 February 2004
This series is about the retired police inspector Hannes König, concerned
with murders in and around the lovely town of Bamberg, Oberfranken,
Bavaria. He is helping (or helped by) his successor, the young and all but
conservative Axel Hübner. The cases are as realistic as you would expect
from an above-average TV series, and this might be actually reason enough
like the story.
But the special charm of this series lies in the way how the peculiarities
of Franconia (Franken) are depicted. It starts with the vineyard where
lives, continues with the distinct dialect of the coroner and various
characters, and culminates in an authentic presentation of the
in the area. I don't know any other series that represents Franconia in
an intriguing manner as this one.
