Crime Scene: Dortmund (Tatort Dortmund)

Movie Collection: Sunday | 8:15 pm | ARD

Since their first case in 2012, the four investigators of the Dortmund team have been called out to crime scenes throughout the Ruhr district. Chief Detectives Peter Faber (Jörg Hartmann) and Martina Bönisch (Anna Schudt), alongside commissioners Nora Dalay (Aylin Tezel) and Daniel Kossik (Stefan Konarske) are the main protagonists in this very modern workplace drama. Each case is important, but what is more important is how the four commissioners react and interact, as each puts their own stamp on the investigation. Central to the series is the strong narrative, as individual story arcs span several episodes, all set against the backdrop of Dortmund, a rough former mining town undergoing significant change. Across the series, Peter Faber has won controversial cult status among fans with his grumpy and unruly manner.
