This quartet of thrillers, known as “Der Zürich Krimi” in Switzerland, began in 2016 with a pair of TV movies chronicling the exploits of Thomas Borchert, a disgraced lawyer who returns to his native Zurich to clear his name after getting caught up in a financial scandal abroad. He enlists the help of Dominique Kuster, an up-and-coming attorney (and daughter of his old family friend) for his defense – and to help find out who set him up! She does so reluctantly at first, but slowly comes to appreciate the older man’s sense of justice and brilliant legal mind – so much so that they continue working together as public defenders after Borchert’s own case is resolved.

One important thing to note going in is that after the first movie, Dominique Kuster is played by a completely different actress! (A simple case of recasting due to the original actor’s unavailability – similar to what happened with Joachim Król/Uwe Kockisch in Donna Leon’s Brunetti, or the actor(s) who play Pia’s ex-husband in Nele Neuhaus Mysteries.) German actress Katrin Bauerfeind plays Dominique in the first movie, “Borchert’s Case” – but from the second movie on, Dominique is played by Ina Paule Klink, whom MHz Choice viewers will recognize as Alex Holtkamp from the long-running Wilsberg series! So don’t be confused by the “new” Dominique, and don’t worry – you’ll love her.
