The “crime scene” in the quick check
a poor pig

By Ingo Scheel

Lena Odenthal heralds the end of “Tatort” summer vacation and really gets to work. Her opponent: a Bundeswehr captain who likes strict rules and deeply despises women. “The Interrogation” is a room game with a pull effect – and some banging effects.

What is happening?

Successful investment banker Ann-Kathrin Werfel dies a brutal death, being burned alive. The first suspicion falls on her husband Patrick (Jonathan Werfel). The couple lives separately, there is domestic violence, their son is staying with his grandmother. This cannot be confirmed at first, further evidence leads Lena Odenthal (Ulrike Folkerts), Johanna Stern (Lisa Bitter) and their team to a nearby army barracks and there to Captain Kessler (Götz Otto).

The residents of Ludwigshafen seem to be on the right track here. Kessler’s car was spotted near the crime scene and the clever soldier turned out to be a macho with a tendency to hot-tempered, and especially confident women are a thorn in his side. But the man with the signature profile is a tough dog and hard to beat. Until another crime takes place and a deadly countdown runs in the background of the increasingly feverish investigation.

What is it really about?

It is about the old class of patriarchy, a branch of social evolution whose last hour should have come. Men who cling to old role clichés and, faced with a gender imbalance, take refuge in malice, hatred and violence. As Die Ärzte sang in one of their most famous songs: “Men are pigs”. Some of these specimens can be seen in “The Interrogation”.

Zap moment?

The burnt corpse already looks pretty bad, visibility is not for the faint of heart.

Wow factor?

This time he cooks on low heat, but as consistently as a dinner from the slow food kitchen: it takes patience and attention, then it develops into an extremely tasty crime meal. “Das Verhör” is particularly tasteful because of the narrowness of the landscape on the one hand, and on the other hand the courage of author Stefan Dähne and director Esther Wenger to make the didactic index finger small to make the eruption moments all the greater.

How was it?

9 out of 10 – gets going a bit slow, but that’s exactly why it develops high entertainment potential
