The Old Fox is a proven crime series still going strong after 30 years on the air. Centered on a senior investigator of the homicide division of the Munich Police, it’s a proven crime series that holds its own among younger competitors.
Each Old Fox has a different personality and investigating style. Erwin Köster is a lone wolf but extremely keen-witted and solves cases with a dry sense of humor. Leo Kress is more of a team player but no less tenacious while Rolf Herzog is characteristically warm and patient. And Richard Voss brings physical vigor to his confidence-inspiring inspector. But one thing they all have in common: Dedication. To the job and their team.
With its subdued, psychologically penetrating and expertly crafted dramaturgy, The Old Fox has helped establish the international success of ZDF’s detective series.
