Lannert - 27 - Das ist unser Haus

Four weeks ago, the members of the Oase Ostfildern building community moved into their building and the foundation had to be dredged up again due to a sealing problem. An even bigger problem emerges: an unidentifiable female corpse. Thorsten Lannert and Sebastian Bootz try to find their way between group sessions and the residents' expressions of feelings in order to obtain clues to the identity of the dead. They encounter the idealistic dream of communal living as well as the conflicts that appear between the apartment owners when they realize that one of them may have become the perpetrator. Especially since the dead could be a former applicant who eventually disappeared without a trace. Some of the group identify their own suspect outside of the house, making life easier for themselves. The commissioners, however, are not willing to be influenced by aura and gut feeling. Rather, it makes you thinkthe missing applicant of all people had caused a stir among some of the residents...
Dietrich Brüggemann and Daniel Bickermann, who have already written "Tatort: Stau" for the Stuttgart team of inspectors, also tie in with this script in everyday life: housing is a pressing issue, especially in the Stuttgart area. The home builders in "Tatort: That is our house" are not only concerned with their own roof over their heads, but above all with the dream of living together. An ideal that, after the lengthy development phase of their project, now has to prove itself in reality and is also being put to the test by dealing with the commissioners. And for Lannert and Bootz, too, the investigation in a milieu in which their very own ways of thinking are anchored is a test, even if it is above all a test of patience.

Weekend in Berlin: party-goers and party-goers roam the wintry streets in search of an unforgettable night.

Weekend in Berlin: party-goers and party-goers roam the wintry streets in search of an unforgettable night. A young woman uses a dating app to find a suitable date in the couple Dennis Ziegler (Vito Sack) and Julia Hoff (Milena Kaltenbach). The next morning, a body is found near Dennis' apartment. Her face is disfigured, making identification impossible.
A missing persons report and a subsequent DNA comparison reveal to the inspectors Nina Rubin (Meret Becker) and Robert Karow (Mark Waschke) that the dead person is the medical student Sophia Bader. When Rubin and Karow bring the news of death to Marianne (Andreja Schneider) and Helmut Bader (Rainer Reiners), the parents deny that the dead woman is their daughter and deny that she used dating portals. To the surprise of the inspectors, Dennis Ziegler and Julia Hoff appear at the police station. They explain that they broke up the same evening after consensual sex with Sophia. But Dennis doesn't seem innocent. A thick police file bears witness to allegations of arson, assault and rape. But he was never convicted.
The suspicion quickly arises that his parents - the patrol officer Doris (Jule Böwe) and the security expert Claus Ziegler (Andreas Döhler) - have repeatedly managed to pull their son's neck out of the noose. And again the parents' fingers seem to be involved, the investigators run into a wall. Rubin and Karow have to use drastic methods to break through the psychogram of the Ziegler family - and to understand why Sophia's parents so vehemently deny their daughter's death.

Murot - 10 - Murot und das Prinzip Hoffnung

A series of murders shakes Frankfurt. Three men are shot in the neck and there is no connection between the victims. Since it is about two "non-Germans" and a homeless person, one initially suspects a perpetrator from the right-wing milieu. But Commissioner Murot from the LKA Wiesbaden has a different suspicion. He believes that the first two murders were only there to make it look like a series of murders, while the perpetrator was really only interested in the third victim: Jochen Muthesius. The homeless man was a former philosophy professor who also taught Murot. At a time when dreams of a better world and the "principle of hope" were still alive. It was different for Muthesius. After a family tragedy, he lived on the streets for years.
And yet he still owned a villa in Kronberg and a considerable private fortune. The three children of the dead man become the focus of investigations: Paul, an eccentric solo entertainer. Inga, a psychotherapist. And Laura, who set up a foundation for the needy with her father's money. While Murot's assistant Wächter is more and more convinced that Murot is getting lost, a new suspect appears: Jürgen von Mierendorff, a neighbor's son and friend of the Muthesius family, but now a member of the right-wing scene. When Murot realizes that several of the suspects are in league with each other and that he only has a chance if he plays them off against each other, he goes on the offensive: in order to lure her out of reserve, he tells her to kill him...

Moormann - 02 - Und immer gewinnt die Nacht

A man's body is found in the harbor. Liv Moormann (Jasna Fritzi Bauer) and Linda Selb (Luise Wolfram) find out: The dead man (Markus Knüfken) was a doctor – and what a doctor! A do-gooder, a Samaritan, one who treated the town's poor pro bono, a helper with great ideals. And now he lies here, executed, on a dusty harbor quay - run over and with his skull crushed in. What is the secret behind the brutal act? Whose anger and hate has been vented here? At first, no motive is recognizable, the traces in the vicinity of the dead run into nothing.
Moormann and Selb investigate meticulously and find a number of suspects: the medical assistant Kirsten Beck (Lisa Jopt), the activists Ann Gelsen and Vicky Aufhoven (Anna Bachmann and Franziska von Harsdorf) andCharlotte Aufhoven (Karoline Eichhorn), the boss of a once posh family business. They all have a lot to hide because they have a lot to lose. The crew of a freighter anchored next to the scene of the crime also remains silent. That's the job for the Dane Mads Andersen (Dar Salim), who tries to hire on the freighter and get more information that way. But this time he cannot convince either the captain or the crew - the situation escalates and Mads Andersen is in serious danger. He also has his own battle against shadows from the past.
This "crime scene" negotiates the relationship between a sense of duty and happiness in life, deals with guilt and atonement and is a plea for the inner freedom of each individual.

So Lindholm does everything to prove her innocence and begins to investigate herself: Was the murderer one of the Udo Lindenberg doubles who are in the hotel because of a casting? She uncovers clues that the murder may have been a trap. Is there even an act of revenge on the commissioner behind all this? For Udo Lindenberg it is the first appearance in a "crime scene".
