Daring theme
16 July 2015 | by slabihoudSee all my reviews

To my surprise this issue of the „Stahlnetz" series doesn't use the famous title music at all but features some kind of jazzy soundtrack. The subject of the story is very daring, the shady life of a prostitute in Hamburg's Sankt Pauli quarter was certainly not a theme that has been used that often if ever before. We are talking about 1958! They avoid drastic language but still enough is said to make the profession of the murdered woman very clear. The voice over gets a bit over-dramatic when it reminds the audience how little time is left till the woman will be dead. Again, we see how much time is spend investigating when you have no witness or clue who the murder is. What I like most in this episode are the many small details of St. Pauli life in a tavern frequented mainly by sailors and prostitutes. At one point Freddy Quinn, who is still well known in Germany and Austria as a singer and actor in silly comedies of the 60's, appears as a singer in the tavern.
