Tatort: Der Wüste Gobi  Season 47, Episode 15

Exciting Weimar! Namesake of an era, hometown of Goethe (who gets name checked with a pretty great pun), Schiller and the Bauhaus School, Weimar is the revier (beat) of the detectives Dorn and Lessing. Notably, Dorn and Lessing are youngish and married. And their heat is out. In this episode The crochet-ing multiple woman-killing Gotthilf Bigamiluschvatokovtschvili, named 'Gobi' by everyone but Lessing who, tellingly, gets the name on the first try, is in a psychiatric hospital being treated by the talented amateur taxidermist, Professor Doctor Eisler. 'Gobi' breaks out to be with his devoted love, Mimi - harpist of the local chamber orchestra. Things, though, are not quite as they seem. 1. This is possibly the funniest, wittiest episode of Tatort ever filmed. As a non-native speaker they come pretty hard and fast, but if you miss one you don't have long to wait for the next. 2. No, seriously, this episode was hilarious. An absolute out-lier for Tatort. I highly recommend it. [more inside]
