One thing you’ll see right away about these two: they’re not as quirky as some of the other Tatort detectives. Both are lone wolves married to the job and come from very different backgrounds: Franz is Munich born and bred, raised by working-class parents, while Ivo was born in Croatia and raised by foster parents. Neither is a hothead or a compulsive ladies man, and neither appears to bring baggage related to family entanglements. They’re straight shooters with each other, committed to justice and to having each other’s backs. They’re not boring characters in the least… just not overly dramatic. It’s their personal stability and friendship that makes the series extremely watchable.

Here’s a clip showing that close-as-brothers thing – as it starts, Ivo has been behaving resentfully because he thinks Franz will be awarded Officer of the Year.

Because of his Croation background, Ivo tends to identify with the marginalized and the outcast. He’s also good at reaching out to distressed people, as you can see in this clip where he makes a connection with a young man with intellectual disabilities.

Here’s an important heads up. The episodes presented in Season 1 are a limited selection from what is available at this time. Their order will differ from the order of the original German releases. So if you notice that they jump through the years a bit – we already know! We also know that you’ll soon see why this Munich duo is so popular with viewers. Enjoy!
