Reine Routine...

(= "average routine" or "same old")

About "tatort: Häschen in der Grube" ("Crimescene: Bunny in the pit"), first aired Sunday, November 23rd 2008, 0815pm.

Munich homicide Lieutenants Batic & Leitmayer investigate the death of a man, whose family along with others shelters a war-orphan from Middleasia (maybe Afghanistan) which suffers of leukemia and is in a treatment-program.

The intention is okay but the plot is less a criminal story but more a vehicle to transport the question how far medical research must go and where the ethical boundaries should be drawn. The background concept follows *imho* vaguely the same general question as for instance "Extreme Measures" (1996).

The writer didn't demand too much personal conflict or a conscience-struggle about the issue from the two Detectives, which makes this episode a little below it's potential.

Otherwise it was probably even more realistic, to show two cops who accept that ethics ain't their job, that the moral conflict is too big for them to solve anyway and that they would just get distracted by the issue and their personal emotions about it, and so instead simply do their duty. That way I might find it an okay episode but ... hm, well, just okay.

But even with a deeper personal affection of the detectives, I think it would still only be just "okay" to me; there are simply too regularly "tatort"-episodes which do so as just recently for instance "Der glückliche Tod" did too.

trivia: "Häschen in der Grube" is a classical German child's chant.
