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

The German True Detective - Exzellent, Dark, Thrillin
21 January 2020 | by DLochnerSee all my reviews

The Pass is one of the best German-Austrian productions I've ever seen. its mostly about its authenticity - I've watched the Austrian speaking parts with subtitles and original language, as they use the whole slang from Austrian people and sometimes its hard to understand.

I like the german actor Franz Harwtig, who plays the murder. I knew him from the first German netflix series -Dark- Hes plays the role almost perfect.

Nicholas Ofczarek, a Gomezes austrreat theater actor, is excellent and such an depressed detective. His whole acting is one of the best I've seen from Austrian Film for a long time.
