Storyline

'Die you pig!'. The words are emblazoned on the wall of the home of school principal Höpfl for all the people of the village to see. And soon after, this very man is found lying dead as a doornail on the train tracks! Franz Eberhofer, the local policeman in the sleepy Lower Bavarian province of Niederkaltenkirchen, suspects murder. And the prospect is one that does not entirely displease him, as this backwoods offers very little excitement other than the fantastic meals with his cooking-obsessed Grandma or the constant stress with his Beatles-loving Dad. He is supported by Rudi Birkenberger, now a department store detective but previously with Franz in the Munich detective squad until both were suspended. The Höpfl case gets even more tangled when a second corpse is found, that of a drug addict hustler that Höpfl had been in contact with. As well as this, Franz must cope with the fact that his Susi is having an affair and he reckons the lover is the Thai offspring of his estranged ... Written by Constantin Television

Comedy from south Germany
13 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Not everyone has the same taste in comedy and this is not laugh out loud and infantile (well mostly it isn't) humor like the one you'll get with a regular Adam Sandler comedy. This is weird and quirky and feels awkward. And therefor it is (or might feel if you are into this) funny. The main actor is really relishing in the understatement and holding back of emotions, that his role requires.

Of course he is on his journey as are some other people in there. Just because it is a comedy doesn't mean it's light. No it does have quite a few dark sides to it. The story thread and the resolution work out nicely and the relationship between characters is easy to follow too. While it takes a while to get to the point it is worth while/watching
