A different color from “North by Northwest”

“The Double Lothar” is the second of three new episodes in the crime series “Nord bei Nordwest” – it differs radically from its predecessor. While “Goblin No. Four” was the perfect mix of Nordic noir and crime comedy with love elements, the film directed by leading actor Hinnerk Schönemann takes a completely different path: there is no trace of the sudden, unrestrained brutality, the murder does not happen shown. The darkly humorous elements surrounding the undertaker Töteberg are also omitted this time.

The whole drama of a man who lives with two families at the same time, each of which knows nothing about each other, is unfolded. In fact, this story is told so excitingly and sensitively that at the end you as a viewer understand the dead man – something that was unthinkable at the beginning.

“Nord bei Nordwest: The double Lothar” runs on Thursday, January 11th at 8:15 p.m. on Erste
