| Run-of -the-mill crime sitcom but worth your while......
Marie Brand is a relatively new German crime sitcom pairing Mariele Millowitsch, a well-known German actress who has been about for years with Hinnerk Schönemann, a relative newcomer, as two police investigators, who investigate crimes in and around Cologne, all the while maintaining a rather light approach for comic relief between the seasoned lady investigator and the hot-headed young one.

All in all standard crime sitcom fare, which the Germans do so well and which it is always worth watching if the weather is dismal or if nothing else is on.

However, what makes this episode stand out, is the spectacular performance of Meret Becker, another well-known face in German film and TV, who plays the daughter of the murdered couple. Her performance comes across as being so real and so sad all the way thru and especially the last 15 mins. belong to her and her ONLY and suddenly turns a rather mild and entertaining show into an extremely tragic affair.

5 stars for the episode as a whole and 2 additional ones for Meret Becker !!
