Tatort: Cologne

Since 1970, Tatort (Scene of the Crime) has established itself as the most successful crime franchise in TV history - a collection of feature-length movies, featuring different police teams in different cities throughout Germany and the German-speaking countries, written, directed and acted by some of the best talent in Europe. In German with English subtitles.
Cologne is known for its cathedral and its carnival, but Germany's pub-loving metropolis is also rife with crime. Among those whose job it is to find the city's murderers and their motives are homicide inspectors Max Ballauf and Freddy Schenk. With his chiseled features and melancholy gaze, Ballauf is the ladies' man who can get the most reserved upper-crust woman and the toughest, tight-lipped madam to willingly part with her secrets. But while his quick temper often gets him into trouble, his robust, level-headed partner Freddy Schenk is always there to help him out. Schenk's stocky frame and good-natured ways belie his physical and mental agility, as well as his dogged persistence. Together, Freddy and Max are two of the most popular investigators in the 45-year history of the Tatort franchise.
