From crime-scene cleaner to CID Chief Inspector: Bjarne Mädel assembles a star ensemble in Katenbüll. Because of an anxiety disorder, CID Chief Inspector Sörensen (Bjarne Mädel) applies for a transfer from Hamburg to Katenbüll in remote North Friesia, where he hopes to lead a quiet life. Katenbüll however turns out to be grey and dismal. And right after his arrival Mayor Hinrichs is found dead in his own stable. The chief inspector soon realizes that he won’t be rid of his anxieties quickly here. In his debut as director, Bjarne Mädel shows a flair for local whimsy, while at the same time fitting the lead character in Sven Stricker‘s novel like a glove.
