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.

The Very best in dark humor
24 June 2014 | by seductionzzSee all my reviews

This series is a MUST HAVE for any cult loving enthusiast...It has the most hilarious one liners . The actors all are perfect for the roles they play and well really there is not much to say but its a PLEASURE in mind sensations :) cant wait for another series of the humble folks in Bruteville <3 .. I myself would love to live within the realms of this once beautiful but now mental city ... the graphics are perfect to the eye, and the actors and actresses alike giving much pleasurable eye candy... It is a sensation for the Grey matter with both wit and sarcasm thrown in and disguised as aromatic humor ... as much like a perfect dinner this show never ceases to provide both tears to the eyes from laughter and wet groins from the increased laughter :) ... simply guys this is a must have for any1 that loves a laugh n great plot .... as for people such as Mr Cinnyaste ... they have no concept of truly great dark black comedy at its finest... as my mother once told me if u have nothing nice to say then keep ur mouth hushed .... THIS MOVIE IS A CULT CLASSIC, N WILL BE AROUND FOR A LONG TIME ... SIMPLE A GEM THAT MUST BE WATCHED
