Iris Berben, star of many top-rated, high-gloss international event TV movies, is today inseparably associated with her 'Rosa Roth' character, the sole female inspector in the Berlin Homicide Department. Behind her head-turning looks and irresistible charm is a formidable combination of intuition, experience and incisive intelligence that raises her far above her investigative colleagues.
Rosa Roth commands a psychological finesse that propels her into the midst of frequently dangerous investigations as she attempts to uncover the wounds and deadly longings of the perpetrator. At the same time, she must often struggle with her own conflicting emotions. Though she sometimes makes mistakes, she instinctively knows where she must peel away layer after layer of motives and clues until she can finally expose the truth about a crime.
Rosa can be emotional, sensitive and soft-hearted, but she can also be distant, imperious and even a little inconsistent. Yet she always approaches her cases with an open mind and without illusions. With her team mates Karin von Lomanski, Charly Kubik and Juergen Roeder, she knows she has a solid basis of support and ever-ready help.
