A man lies dead by the river, the police unable to identify a crime. Then a detective agency comes into play: a new case for “The Vixen”.

Berlin – A body is found on the banks of the Rhine in Düsseldorf. The man is said to have drowned, but his wife Corina (Liza Tzschirner) doubts this, as she finds the idea that Thomas was drunkenly swinging off the quay wall and falling into the water absurd. Since Commissioner Ralf Eisner (Robert Dölle) sees no motive for a murder and does not intend to launch an official investigation, Corina hires the two detectives Anne M. Fuchs (Lina Wendel) and Youssef el Kilali (Karim Chérif). . “Old Sins” is the eighth film in the police series “The Vixen” and will be screened this Thursday at 8:15 p.m. in the first.

During the investigation, Youssef’s wife, Simone Papst (Jasmin Schwiers), also enters the scene. Because the dead man worked in his father’s (Günter Barton) real estate company. She quickly discovers that Thomas introduced a harsh austerity program there, and that her assistant once had an affair with her father.

Director Katrin Schmidt (47, “Der Denmark-Krimi”) delivers a solid crime thriller that feels a bit forced at times, but has plenty of unexpected twists and turns. So the viewer can really guess who might be behind the murder. Because of course it was a crime. There is also a tangible surprise that affects Simone’s family and completely upsets them. Her actress, Jasmin Schwiers, obviously enjoys snooping around.

Lina Wendel (57, “Ella Schön”) plays a wonderfully astute detective, on whom her past as a former Stasi spy still shines through occasionally. She can be very strict and assertive, but also surprisingly sensitive. And she understands almost masterfully how to resist the stupid advances of Commissioner Eisner, whom she doesn’t find too bad at all. Karim Chérif (45, “A Summer in Brittany”) also plays a no less unusual private detective who also knows all kinds of tricks and is extremely skilled in terms of craftsmanship.

Less skillful is the resolution of the tricky case that, in addition to private involvement, also has a revenge campaign and even a kidnapping prepared. But be that as it may: the thriller is always exciting and even quite dramatic at the end. The next case “Game over” can be seen next Thursday (February 2, 20:15). dpa
