To make a long story short: A top-ranking politician of a new right-wing party is assassinated with a car bomb. In the end it turns out other party members conspired and killed their own chairman in order to gain a "victim bonus" in the upcoming elections. Yes, that's a motive for murder in a German prime time police procedural.
The premise is like a giant spoiler. And the plot follows the same spin introduced by all major German newscasts: "Every time a terror attack happens, right-wing politicians and voters around the world are actually happy about it!" So the fictional TV content now conforms to the fictional newsreels. Like in good old East Germany. Hurrah!
What makes things even worse is the poor acting performance by virtually everybody appearing in this flick. Wotan Wilke Möhring once again proves he is the second-most overrated contemporary German actor (the first one being Til Schweiger) and Franziska Weisz' wooden performance reminds me of Cara Delevingne in "Valerian". No one was interested in doing a good job, because everybody knew the press will hype this anyway.
