Murder, suspicion, and a missing police officer fuel Sven Bohse‘s (“Ku’damm 56”) true-crime miniseries “Dark Woods“.
Written by Stefan Kolditz, the story is set “in the summer of 1989, Barbara Neder, the sister of high-ranking Hamburg police officer Thomas Bethge, disappears from her home without a trace. Shortly before this, two couples had been cruelly murdered in nearby woodlands.  Suspicion quickly falls on artist Hans Lingner, who is living on the edge of the forest and is a gun enthusiast. However, the links between the earlier murder cases, the “Killer Forest” and Barbara’s disappearance are not initially picked up by the investigators.  Instead, the police begin to suspect Barbara’s husband Robert who was in the process of divorcing his wife. Their daughter Theresa has been hit hard by her mother’s disappearance and the suspicions surrounding her father, making her too, believe that her father may be her mother’s murderer.”
Inspired by real-life events that took place in the late 1980s, this sinister mini-series tells the story of a family tragedy, and of a brother searching for his missing sister for more than 30 years.
