“Police call 110” in a quick check
From Ingo Scheel
After twelve years, Commissioner Bukow takes his hat. To say goodbye, they pull out all the stops in Rostock. Bela B is there, Bukow’s opponent of yore, Subocek, and Amor is also working hard. Is there a happy ending for Katja König and her colleague? That remains classified until Sunday evening.
What is happening?
The hall cooks in the Rostock music club MIAU. Jo Mennecke (Bela B Felsenheimer) and his band give a concert, the atmosphere is outstanding. What one cannot say about Tito (Alexandru Cirneala): The club boss with the line to the underworld, something like the designated heir of the murdered Bukow senior, lies dead in a storage room next to the stage. Initially, Mennecke, who had been hired out latently, was the focus of Commissioner Sascha Bukow (Charly Hübner) and colleague Katrin König (Anneke Kim Sarnau), there were disputes about outstanding fees, there was talk of a scuffle.
It doesn’t take long, however, before all pots in Rostock are on fire. With Zoran Subocek (Aleksandar Jovanovic) an old friend of Bukow’s is released from jail. The unscrupulous gangster terrorized the senior in the past, and fellow inmate Guido Wachs also told him that Bukow and König once falsified evidence. And then there’s the love story between the two detective: Recently Bukow and König fell into each other’s arms and now even share a toothbrush, which they don’t necessarily like equally. Does the newly in love couple with bulging problem rucksacks have any prospect of a happy ending? A question that brings both to their knees.
What is it really about?[display-posts orderby="rand"]
When Bukow and König answered police call 110 in Rostock a good twelve years ago, it caused a sensation and excellent reviews across the board. Idiosyncratic investigators, gripping cases, side stories that sometimes turned out to be more exciting than the case itself, sometimes brutal and straight, then again with soft tones and psychological depth, always exciting and entertaining. With Bukow’s departure, Anika Wangard (screenplay) and Eoin Moore (screenplay and direction) were primarily concerned with one thing, a homage to the format. As for the first 73 minutes of “None of Us”, which could be seen in the press area, one can definitely say: Mission accomplished.
Doesn’t exist, on the contrary, one would like to soak up Bukow’s last mission to the last second. Only one production-related detail in terms of the location is noticeable: the music club MIAU from Rostock, where there is actually the MAU club, is to be relocated to another Hanseatic city, to a live club that will be known to concertgoers there immediately a bit strange.
Extremely high. Farewell is a sharp sword, dear Charly Huebner, but the writer of these lines has not even seen the very grueling final quarter of an hour.
How was it?
10 out of 10 points – not entirely official, the rating, due to the restricted dosage form, nevertheless: You already miss someone like Bukow. It was nice. Hard. And pretty.
