The so-called “Sheriff of Marienplatz” Xaver Bartl, the deserted ex-criminal Felix Kandler and their colleagues take care of the city’s gangsters in the center of Munich. Indeed the focus is not on murder, homicide or criminal cases in general, but on the extraordinary cases of the protagonists’ every day’s life and misunderstandings of human relationships in the Bavarian metropolis. And also the private life of the unequal couple is quite turbulent, not least because of womankind.
