When a gruesomely staged body is found, propped up on a mountain pass in the Alps close to the German-Austrian border, two detectives are sent to investigate. For German detective Ellie, this is the first real challenge of her career; her Austrian counterpart Gedeon though seems to have lost any ambitions in his job. Very soon, they discover more crime scenes with symbolically posed victims, reminiscent of pagan rituals. It all seems to be part of a bigger, sinister plan. Ellie finds herself under increasing pressure to understand the deranged killer's motives so she can stop him. The hunt leads them ever deeper in the dark valleys and archaic Alpine customs - and the paranoid world of the killer. Written by Beta Film

User Reviews

Very well done, superb acting
7 March 2019 | by LentilSoupSee all my reviews

When I started watching the series I was a bit doubtful since it appeared overly similar to The Bridge, and actually it draws heavily on that story. But further into the series, it develops its own direction of the plot and a unique tone. As other reviewers have remarked, the quality of set design and cinematography are at a remarkably high level. Furthermore, the story is well written, with unexpected but credible turns in every episode. The pace is high and the story twists are unforeseeable up until the end. Also the character development of the lead figures is very well carried out. And finally, the level of acting by the lead actors is really outstanding. Julia Jentsch and Franz Hartwig are excellent in their roles, and also the supporting actors are all doing a fine job. But Nicholas Ofczarek is clearly the standout. He is playing an unlikable character but he drags you in. Initially one might get the impression that he is cheesy in his role, but he performs his part brilliantly as the series goes on. Definitely worth watching for his performance alone. Some slight points of criticism are that in a certain sense, many story elements are already familiar (e.g. from The Bridge) and that some characters that are being introduced with some new and interesting plot directions are completely abandoned in later episodes. Nevertheless, this series is certainly a highlight among the German language series in the recent past couple of years.
