A team of inspectors investigate murders in and around the small Upper Bavarian town of Rosenheim. There is plenty of time to see idyllic landscapes and luxurious pre-alpine villas, as well as to enjoy sumptuous Bavarian fare with beer.
I watched the first five series on DVD. This is a great TV show to watch if you want to see Vienna and learn German. You will get to experience some Austrian dialect, but it's not a hard dialect to pick up.
The show is not too heavy, and not too light, it's entertainment. Yes, it's a crime show, but there is very little violence and the characters interact nicely - a team effort. Some of the other Soko franchise are much darker, this series captures the Vienna charm (cheek). Each Soko (Leipzig, Rhein Main, Koln) has its own "personality". This is my favorite of the franchise, and definitely the lightest.
If only they would release more DVDs, I've been waiting for the next series for too long!
