Of the “Crime scene” from Ludwigshafen this Sunday (May 8th) marks a special milestone for Ulrike Folkerts (alias Lena Odenthal): For the 75th time she is playing the “crime scene“-Commissioner.

But ARD viewers and fans have to be patient this Sunday until they can see the anniversary. The ARD postpones the television program for a serious reason.

“Tatort”: ARD moves case from Ludwigshafen – the reason

The Ludwigshafener “Crime Scene: Marlon” will not be shown on ARD at the usual time this Sunday. Instead, some things in the program are different: Because of the Schleswig-Holstein election and the subsequent Berlin round, the news only comes from 8 p.m. to 8:20 p.m.


This is the “crime scene”:

  • The crime series is broadcast on Sundays at 8:15 p.m. on ARD
  • There are several teams of investigators at different locations that take turns
  • The ARD “crime scene” has become a TV cult in German television programs over the years
  • All episodes can be accessed in the media library


But even after that there is a special program – from 8.20 p.m. to 8.25 p.m. the speech by Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz will be broadcast. The reason for the speech is the end of the Second World War 77 years ago and the current situation in the Ukraine war. The speech will be recorded as early as Sunday afternoon.

“Tatort”: That’s what the new case is about

The new case of Lena Odenthal and Johanna Stern is about nine-year-old Marlon, who is found dead at his school. He was pushed down the stairs, his injuries indicate a struggle.
