Walter Presents announces premiere date for German drama 23 Cases

EDIT: Article amended with new premiere date.

WALTER PRESENTS: 23 CASES (23 Morde). The German public breathes a sigh of relief when serial killer Maximillian Rapp finally confesses to 23 brutal murders. But for Detective Tara Schöll, something doesn’t add up; there are missing fingerprints and Rapp might have an alibi for one of the 23 cases. Why would he confess to a murder he didn’t commit?

Tara Schöll and her lover and colleague Henry Kloss suspect Max Rapp is innocent of at least three of the murders to which he confessed. Convincing the chief of police that their necks will be on the line if they don’t solve this, he asks Tara to head up the investigation team. But when Rapp warns them that another murder is on the horizon, they have no choice but to enlist him to find the real killer before more innocent lives are taken. With a sixth sense for detecting evidence, Rapp could be the key to proving his own innocence; or could he just be a master manipulator using Tara for his own sick game?

This six part German series was actually filmed back in 2015 – having been commissioned by German channel Sat. 1 but was ultimately deemed “too gloomy, too pointed & too hard” (“zu düster, zu spitz und zu hart” in case google translate is off) for their viewers and was only released in Germany in 2019 on new streaming platform Joyn.

The series – initially due to air back in March – will now premiere on More4 on Friday, 11 September and air weekly on that channel. All episodes will be available on All4 after the first episode airs on More4.
