German crime series, centering around a succession of lawyers and a private investigator and former police officer, who typically team up to clear a client of the lawyer, who is usually an innocent suspect in a murder case.
Claus Theo Gärtner,
I watched the first five series on DVD. This is a great TV show to watch if you want to see Vienna and learn German. You will get to experience some Austrian dialect, but it's not a hard dialect to pick up.
The show is not too heavy, and not too light, it's entertainment. Yes, it's a crime show, but there is very little violence and the characters interact nicely - a team effort. Some of the other Soko franchise are much darker, this series captures the Vienna charm (cheek). Each Soko (Leipzig, Rhein Main, Koln) has its own "personality". This is my favorite of the franchise, and definitely the lightest.
If only they would release more DVDs, I've been waiting for the next series for too long!
