Martin Stolberg, chief detective, is a man you like to confide in, even in the thicket of crime – perhaps because you immediately sense that with him everything will always be all right in the end. Stolberg is supported by two young colleagues, the commissioners Sofia Lechner and Florian Glade. In the tradition of the Friday detective stories, Stolberg looks behind the scenes of Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, and traces the family secrets in the mansions of Oberkassel as well as the worries of the little people in Bilk.
The character “Stolberg” was developed jointly by award-winning director Matti Geschonneck, producer Reinhold Elschot, editor Sabine Groß and producer Bettina Wente.
Kommissar Stolberg” is produced by Network Movie Cologne. Bettina Wente is the producer. The producer of seasons 1 – 3 is Reinhold Elschot. Sabine Groß is the ZDF editor.
