I'm a big fan of Beck and have seen all the movies. This is not one of the best, perhaps one of the weakest. Perhaps that's because the protagonist Martin Beck now gets a more and more retrenched role, and new investigators have come in. Much of the series's strength was built around this character. Now that the new ones have come, it looks more like other competing crime series. Something special is gone. I also did not like the story here, it is not the most exciting or sensational. But it's certainly demanding to come up with new good stories when this is movie No. 38. I think if the series is going to survive, they must come up with stronger content than this and I'm unsure whether the new female lead role owner has what it takes to be a good substitute for Beck. I doubt it, but I will continue to follow.
