Excellent work, Mr Schalko!
2 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

To be honest, at first, I could not get into this show. I am not the biggest fan of German or Austrian TV-shows, because normally, they are really boring (e.g. the "Tatort"). But after two, three episodes, I loved it. The strange relationship between the most people in this world full of sarcasm, murder, greed and lust. While the series is ongoing, it becomes stranger and stranger, until it explodes in an absurdity, that can reach even "Fargo". New story lines just com over the way, as if they were usual, when you didn't expect it, and within 8 episodes, David Schalko is creating us a masterpiece of TV history.
