Storyline

It's a dystopian future in Brüteville City, where crime is running rampant due to a gangland styled war between rival mob bosses Johann Tannhauser and Racken. Gunter Vogler and Martine Mahler are two of Tannhauser's hit people. Sociopath Gunter kills for killing's sake. Martine, who is Tannhauser's girlfriend, is having an affair with Gunter. In a robbery gone wrong, Gunter is shot in the face and captured by the police. After recuperating, Gunter is convinced by Police Commissioner Eva Braden to work for them against Tannhauser, when she shows him that Martine was the one who purposefully shot him, probably on Tannhauser's orders. What is as distasteful to Gunter is that the face of one of the police detectives he killed in the botched robbery is transplanted onto him as part of his reconstructive surgery. Now masquerading as that detective, Gunter is partnered with overly sensitive Lt. Karl Hagerman, who cannot stomach that he is now working side by side with the man who killed his ...

A laugh a minute with a colourful cast
24 June 2014 | by missredkittenSee all my reviews

I was shown this series by a friend a little while ago and I was instantly hooked. With a quirky and dark humour that leaves me in peals of laughter how could I not continue watching? In fact I have re watched it twice now anticipating the next season to come. The one liners are quick and witty and they come thick and fast giving you a laugh a minute. The entire cast are brilliant in their roles but I feel I must mention both Max Williams and Eddie Izzard deliver their performances in insanely humorous style leaving me in stitches every time without fail. Keep writing Alan because I am dying for the next season and getting to see what my favourite socio- path does next. Full points on my score card for a very original, funny, and brilliantly cast show. If you have not watched this series yet I recommend you do so and prepare for rolling laughter.
