People on the street can be seen using bags from the "Bellheim" warehouse. The owner of this fictitious warehouse was the main character in director Dieter Wedel's previous project, Der große Bellheim (1993). See more »
Although I'm not particularly into German television, this miniseries caught my attention when it was first aired in 1996. It had a lot of cliches and a strong resemblance with 1997's "Donnie Brasco".
Undercover cop infiltrates criminal organisation and then feels bad about selling out his new friends. That's basically it.
So if you like this setting and are able to get a hold of this series (that is, if you are able to receive German television, you speak German and you have the luck that it is aired again), it's well worth your time. The acting is good (the cast includes some of Germany's finest actors) and so is the plot. 7/10
