Current

Watzmann investigates


Chief Inspector Benedikt Beissl is used to act alone in his precinct in Berchtesgaden – only until his new colleague crops up. Jerry Paulsen is not only Beissls complete opposite – charming, talkative and open-heartedly -, as son of a German mother and an American GI he has a different skin colour. Nevertheless Beissl is bothered most by Jerry being the boyfriend of his beloved daughter Johanna – making him his future son-in-law. Beissl is driven up the wall by the pleasant personality of the “Wannabe Obama”.

Once the two Inspectors start investigating, though, private issues are left out – at least most of the time. At work they are men with attitude, no cool cops. Beissl would like to protect his sound family from the world out there, of which unfortunately even Berchtesgaden is part of. His wife Elisabeth and his daughter Johanna, a local journalist, know that, too. It is good to know that eventually the family can always rely on each other – including new family members such as Jerry Paulsen.
