Sophie Haas had actually been looking forward to finally being promoted to head of Cologne's homicide squad. But instead, she is unexpectedly transferred to the fictitious provincial town of Hengasch, where murder and manslaughter are nowhere in sight. At least that's how it seems at first glance. However, behind the perfect façade of the sleepy Eifel village, abysses soon open up that provide the ambitious city detective with enough food for thought to prevent her from becoming bogged down behind a desk in her job. Together with her rather staid police colleagues Dietmar Schäffer and Bärbel Schmied, she goes on the hunt for criminals in the rural environment. The series lives from its lovingly drawn quirky characters and their very special humour.

Old Reuter was poisoned with an overdose of Rohypnol.
