Bavarian Anarchism
22 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anarchism on the philosophical level of a principal of life has a long tradition in Bavaria, from the witnessing of Tacitus about the Bajuvari to Ludwig Thoma, Oskar Maria Graf, Ludwig Ganghofer, Oskar Panizza, up to the Raeterepublik around Mühsam, Eisner and Levinee, and, in newer time, not to forget Franz Josef Strauss. Hauptkommissar Benno Berghammer is an institution in Bad Tölz. If one believes the series, than there might be nowhere else in this world such a density of murder-cases like in this spa village that lives basically from tourism. But Berghammer is not only the cleaning instance of crime, he is also and mostly the standard measure for the preservation of Bavarian culture. He refuses to eat anything but Leberkas, Tellersülze, Schweinsbrotn, Schwarzwurst, Leberknödl. When a client tells him that he was arrested in Hamburg because he got into a fight with someone telling that a specific Bavarian beer tastes like that yellow secretive liquid, Berghammer's answer is that for his heroic deed he would have earned a reward in Bavaria. In a time where everything changes, the "Bull" is like a stone in the rivers, immovable but a steady value and guarantee for consistency and controllability. In dealing with him, nobody has to fear bad surprises. Big as a Bavarian mountain, he also represents thrust and faithfulness, like a high mountain he is also a landmark and emblem for a land that has survived the storms of the European wars between then Migration Period and the Turkish Inundation that basically affected Northern Germany. And last but by no means least: There is nobody as capable and predestined to play the character of Berghammer as Ottfried Fischer is: Shy towards (blonde) women, aggressive against his mother,sarcastic and cynical against any form of stupidity, splendidly intelligent up to metaphysical dimensions.
