13 new episodes of the ZDF early evening series “SOKO Hamburg” have been filmed in spring and summer 2020. The SOKO Hamburg team is once again led by Chief Inspector Sarah Kahn (Pegah Ferydoni). She is assisted by the two experienced investigators Oskar Schütz (Marek Erhardt) and Lena Testorp (Anna von Haebler), as well as Detective Inspector Max Nordmann (Garry Fischmann) and Detective Candidate Franziska Berger (Paula Schramm).
The Elbe is the connecting element between Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony and offers the three-country SOKO a variety of locations and cases, ranging from St. Pauli to the port of Hamburg, the Alte Land to Dithmarschen. Therefore, the commissioner’s office of “SOKO Hamburg” is located on the outskirts of the city directly on the Elbe. From there, the commissioners can also reach many locations by boat.

It is produced by Network Movie Film- und Fernsehproduktion, Jutta Lieck-Klenke, Hamburg. Peter Jännert and Silvia Lambri are the ZDF editors responsible.
