"Tatort: ​​Nothing but the truth": Berlin two-parter gets weak ratings

Actress Corinna Harfouch (68) celebrated her debut as "Tatort" commissioner Susanne Bonard on Easter weekend. The two-part series "Nothing but the Truth" was watched by 6.22 million fans on Sunday (April 9) and 6.02 million on Monday (April 10). According to official figures from the AGF, the "crime scene" from Berlin was the weakest in terms of quotas of the year to date.

With a market share of 23.3 percent, it was still enough for the day's victory on Sunday. Second place was secured by the "Dream Ship" on ZDF, which attracted 5.20 million people to their screens. Meanwhile, 600,000 viewers watched the first Easter special of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?".

The second edition of the quiz show even reached 14.8 percent of 14 to 49 year olds on Sunday. With a market share of 15.7 percent, the sequel to "Tatort" just topped this value. The crime thriller competition "Nord Nord Mord", which was running on ZDF at the same time, had to be content with 7.5 percent. However, the episode "Sievers and the first cry" was very popular with the older audience and inspired a total of 6.13 million people, which meant the day's winner among the total audience.

The "crime scene" is likely to have cost "Nord Nord Mord" in terms of reach. At the beginning of the year, the series reached a significantly larger audience with 8.98 and 9.44 million respectively. At least a small consolation for the "crime scene".

In "Nothing but the Truth" Robert Karow (Mark Waschke, 51) is called to a crime scene. Everything indicates that the young security police officer Rebecca Kästner (Kaya Marie Möller, 37) took her own life in her apartment the night before: drugs, custody dispute, excessive demands. But when Karow finds her frightened four-year-old son Matti (Yvon Moltzen) in the garden, he has doubts about the suicide. What mother does that in front of her child? Then the last call from the dead to an unusual number: Susanne Bonard (Corinna Harfouch), a former LKA size who now teaches at the police academy.

Shortly before Robert Karow and Susanne Bonard can clarify the death of Rebecca Kästner, they are denied access to their main suspect Tina Gebhardt (Bea Brocks, 35) by state security. A short time later, she is also dead. Based on circumstantial evidence, she is convicted as Rebecca's murderer and Karow and Bonard are instructed to close the case. But then an important witness appears who saw Tina Gebhardt die.
