Episode Spur 211" had by far the longest running time in the series and had been broadcast in two parts. Heinz Engelmann once again investigates the crime or rather crimes, because it takes some false starts and there are a lot of loose ends in the first part of this episode till the connection between some cases become known and the story picks up. Until then a lot of unnecessary detailed scenes of misleading clues and interrogations, obviously inserted to justify a two-part showing have to be endured.
The only relief is the rather funny sidekick of the commissioner, who not only resembles Helmut Qualtinger but also talks like him. The second half suddenly focuses a lot on flashbacks since the criminals are known but it takes a confession to proof it. Hannelore Elstner in one of her earliest appearances is very convincing as a naive young girl dragged into a criminal partnership by her being born into a family of thieves and robbers.
