Storyline

For decades, Freya has been protocolling criminal interrogations for the Berlin police department. She lives a secluded life, haunted by the gruesome accounts of violent crime - and even more by the disappearance of her daughter Marie, 11 years earlier. An old friend, Henry takes over the department as new police commissioner. As their friendship gradually turns to love, Freya suddenly feels something akin to happiness for the first time in years. Until a similar case brings all the old memories back and she resolves to finally get to the bottom of Marie's disappearance. Especially when evidence suggests that the two cases could be linked - together with some other unsolved murders. Taking matters into her own hands, she initiates some unconventional investigations of her own, and finds out more than she bargained for. Henry, too, gets closer to the truth - and to Freya's own dark secret. Their newfound love suddenly in jeopardy, Freya must decide if justice is worth the sacrifice. Written by Beta Film GmbH

When the Past Takes Over
29 January 2019 | by Rupert17See all my reviews

Iris Berben plays Freya, who lost her daughter years before in what appear to be strange circumstances. She works as a typist for the police and frequently takes down verbatim interviews with those charged with murder. She is an introverted, contemplative loner who lives her life alone haunted by her daughter's disappearance and the lack of closure surrounding her fate .

This is quite a multi-layered narrative and over five episodes the truth surrounding Freya's life is stripped bare in a clever and complicated series of revelations. I liked the fact that sensationalism is omitted and replaced by believable actions and an ultimately acceptable denouement. Iris Berben's acting is underplayed in one sense, but quite riveting in another.

The series is set in today's Berlin, and although a dark theme is always pervasive the modern optimism of contemporary Germany is always to the fore.
