An excellent example of the German Polizeiruf series.
This is an excellent example of the German Polizeiruf series in which Peter Przybylski's cinematography and Hendrik Handloegten's direction combine to caress the landscape of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with the languid heat of summer being almost palpable.
There are strong performances all round and there is a solid script. Uwe Steimle puts in a typical performance (of which there a large number in the Polizeiruf series) as the eccentric blond-haired Kriminalhauptkommissar Jens Hinrichs, with light notes off-setting the police procedure and criminal investigation.
Overall, though, the great merit of this episode is its transmission of a sense of ambiance and environment. Well worth a watch for anyone with sufficient German.
