Scene of the Crime - Münster (Tatort Münster)

Movie Collection: Sunday | 8:15 pm | ARD

Developed by Sonja Goslicki, Crime Scene: Münster is the most successful and popular Crime Scene format ever and enjoys cult status. Here, instinct meets ingenuity; in a city where bicycle theft is the most frequent offence, a fast-paced squad is not needed – what’s required are patient, skilled investigators, who can rid the city of the most devious criminals around. Detective Frank Thiel (Axel Prahl) and coroner Professor Karl-Friedrich Boerne (Jan Josef Liefers) work together but with very contrasting styles. The ensemble cast also includes the wise Nadeshda Krusenstern (Friederike Kempter), Boerne's keen assistant Silke "Alberich" Haller (Christine Urspruch), and ageing prosecutor Wilhelmine Klemm (Mechthild Grossmann) alongside Thiel’s father Herbert (Claus D. Clausnitzer), a shrewd taxi-driver who has his ear to the ground.
