User Reviews

Very enjoyable first season. Not so sure about the second.
23 May 2020 | by altereggo123See all my reviews

The show does a good job of capturing the atmosphere of Lake Constance. The mysteries combine history and folklore with local color-wine-making, fishing, forestry or other activities in that area. Lake Constance is almost an uncredited character in the show. The chemistry between the driven and frigid Frau Zeiler and the sloppier, more relaxed Herr Oberlander works, even if it isn't entirely original. No, she is not Saga from "The Bridge," but I'm not sure that comparison is apt; she has different reasons for being the way she is. I do like the fact that each episode features a new case, with a background story connecting them all.

I do have issues with Season 2. While it continues to make good use of Lake Constance and German history and folklore, it's a bit more of a soap opera than Season 1. Too much melodrama, not enough mystery. I'm only three episodes in, though, so it may improve.
