The Bella Block crime series is synonymous with the grandiose Hannelore Hoger, who stamps this series with her intensity and authenticity, her dry wit, caustic charm and mercilessly honest character. As Bella Block, she transforms these 90-minute crime thrillers into subtly differentiated and emotionally gripping dramas.
Maintaining a consistently high quality over the years, this award-winning series portrays psychologically challenging characters and describes the drama behind the deed as well. Paired with Rudolf Kowalski as Bella Block's longtime companion, Hannelore Hoger infuses her character with complexity and vulnerability, as well as impulsiveness and intuition.
She's not afraid to penetrate to the heart of a crime; in fact, it's the search for the motives and the background of a murder that's in the forefront of her investigations. And with their gripping psychological suspense, her cases don't need physical violence to hold the viewer's attention.
