The other kind of crime

This is the third movie based on some very popular books in Germany. The humor in it is very dry and while I haven't read the books I have seen the other movies. And this is a neat-less continuation of the characters we already established in the other movies. So while it's not necessary to watch or know the other films, it does help identifying the characters a lot easier and quicker.

The spoken dialect is from Bayern so some Germans may have problems getting a couple of things, but it's more than understandable. There are so many things going on, that this time around there is not as much time to spend with the odd side characters. But there's still some fun we can have with them. It's funny, it's sometimes a bit mean, but always good hearted. And really well produced ... can't wait for Part 4 and 5 (already announced, also based on the books from the same woman and the same characters).
