A bit more veiled, Felix Murot (played by Ulrich Tukur), the family name being an anagram of "tumor". (He had a very plot-relevant brain tumor.)

Added DiffLines:
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: "Im Schmerz geboren", where 50 people bite the dust. (More a case of AudienceReactions - in Germany ''and'' Tatort such a bodycount is seen as extremely unusual.)

The series is usually broadcast on Sundays during PrimeTime on the German channel ''[[GermanTVStations Das Erste]]'', the Austrian channel ''ORF 2'', and ''[=SF1=]'' in German-speaking Switzerland. You can expect to see reruns of older episodes on some of the regional tv stations about every other day.

Useful Notes/ pages are not tropes. Neither are Creator/ pages. And the point of Grey And Gray Morality is that both spellings of the colour are used in the trope name.
* GermanDialects: Depending on the setting, these can be more or less pronounced. When the episode is set in Munich, Austria or Switzerland, many viewers for further north are glad about the subtitle option. * GermanTVStations: The German ''Tatort'' episodes are produced by the regional stations that make up the ARD -- BR, HR, MDR, NDR, RB, RBB (formerly SFB and ORB), SR, SWR, and WDR -- which means that all major regions of Germany are represented in the series. How they are represented depends to a large extent on regional peculiarities. Thus Bremen and the Saarland, the two smallest [[UsefulNotes/TheSixteenLandsOfDeutschland German states]] (by population) are seen fairly often because they have broadcasting networks of their own (Radio Bremen and Saarländischer Rundfunk), while some larger and more populous regions and cities are neglected because they don't. Thus until recently Bavarian ''Tatort'' investigators were always based in Munich, the state capital, and people in Franconia (the northern part of the state) would have to wait until 2015 for a ''Franken-Tatort'' (set in Nuremberg). Similarly, most Hessian ''Tatort'' investigators have been based in Frankfurt. * GreyAndGreyMorality: The episode "Weil sie böse sind". ("Because They're Evil")

* Creator/RichardWagner: Professor Boerne is an admirer, which led him to give his assistant Silke Haller the nickname [[Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen Alberich]]. In the course of later episodes she acquired a dog called Wotan, which belonged to a murder victim [[spoiler: who turned out to be Boerne's near-identical half-brother]], and it was revealed that she lives in ''[[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung Rheingoldweg]]'' ("Rhine Gold Way").
