Grumpy Old Cops (Rentnercops)

Series: new episodes | Wednesday | 6:50 pm | Das Erste

Once again there is a staff shortage in the police department and police chief Plocher reactivates two former investigators to solve a tricky mobster case. Mafia expert Bielefelder and retired inspector Schmitz don't have fond memories of each other from their operational days which creates a lot of friction. And, of course, they both have big shoes to fill.
