Michael Fitz is Alfons Hattinger. A commissioner who doesn’t like to talk much, certainly not about himself and his feelings. But behind the cool appearance is empathy for the people of his homeland. This home is the picturesque landscape around Lake Chiemsee.

Viviane Andereggen – a young director from Switzerland – who graduated from the Hamburg Media School with a Master of Arts degree, was recruited to direct the film. Andereggen is one of the most talented up-and-coming directors in the German-speaking world.

The film is based on the novel of the same name “Hattinger und der Nebel” by Thomas Bogenberger, published by Pendragon Verlag. “Hattinger und der Nebel – Ein Chiemseekrimi” is a production of Network Movie, Hamburg. Producers: Jutta Lieck-Klenke and Dietrich Kluge. The editorial office at ZDF is in the hands of Daniel Blum.



On her run-down farm, Ursula Kammler discovers the body of her brother. The two had shared the inheritance at Chiemsee, lived and worked there. The colleagues from the white-collar crime unit have been keeping a file on Joe Kammler’s strange business practices for years, but so far they have been unable to prove anything. Sarah Beck (Jessica Schwarz), the secretary of the murder victim, helps Hattinger to finally see through the web of business relationships: The murdered man seems to have made common cause with a dubious banker.

Sarah’s erotic charisma visibly captivates the inspector. Playing with fire, he embarks on an affair with the mysterious woman, unaware that he himself is being instrumentalized.

A few days later, Ursula Kammler is also found murdered. What did Hattinger and his team overlook during the investigation? Is there a perfidious plan behind all this?
