Television: Actors from Pufendorf: too many crime dramas on German TV

Actor Max von Pufendorf often appears in crime dramas - and thinks there are too many of them on German television. "It starts with the titles that we no longer know where the murder is supposed to take place? Murder on the mudflats, murder in the mudflats, the dead man in the forest, the dead man on the mountain, the dead man on the summit, Murder in the north, murder in the south and murder in the northwest," said the 47-year-old in an interview with the German Press Agency.

"At some point we'll run out of places where we can investigate. I think even those who like crime dramas agree: there's a certain overload on German television."

Pufendorf starred alongside Nora Tschirner and Elyas M'Barek in "Offroad" and can be seen from Sunday in the play "Cluedo - the murderer's game" in the comedy on Kurfürstendamm in the Theater am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. The play “Cluedo” is not over-intellectualized like many other plays, says Pufendorf. "I think it's incredibly important that we do theater evenings again where people can laugh and the laughter isn't too stupid."

The fact that crime novels are so successful is also due to the fact that there is an amateur detective in everyone, says Pufendorf. "It is also a human need to want to deal with the depths of humanity. In the end, the murderer is usually exposed and sent to prison. Then the world is good again."
