Nice show, this dog is a genius!
24 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

This series aired also in Greece several years ago, but unfortunately it has been translated into Greek. Subtitles would be better, but anyway.

The Austrians have done a great job, the dog is very clever and Tobias Moretti is ideal for his role.

Apart from the action, the mystery and the whole plot on each episode, passion and humor is also present. I was watching it as a kid, but there are some violent and/or sexual scenes, so parents better be careful with that.

I don't know if the show airs on other countries, but if so give it a shot, I believe it's worth it.
