The shooting of the newcrime scene“ in Dortmund have started. The episode “Love is Pain” will be produced in the Ruhr area city until June 3, 2022.

In the “crime scene – Love me” Martina Bönisch (Anna Schudt) died on film. The second Dortmund “crime scene‘ shot after the investigator’s unexpected death.

“Tatort”: YOU are new to the set

While you will most likely not see Anna Schudt on the set of “Love is Pain”, there are fresh faces on site. Roswitha Ester and Torsten Reglin (Ester.Reglin.Film) have taken over the production of a “crime scene” for the first time!

“We were really looking forward to it. Together with the authors and Frank Tönsmann (WDR editor, editor’s note) we developed the case and adapted the inspectors’ stories to what happened in the films before. For example, the death of Martina Bönisch,” emphasizes Roswitha Ester to this editorial team.

And what is the “crime scene” that is currently being shot in Dortmund about? When Peter Faber (Jörg Hartmann) joins Jan Pawlak (Rick Okon) and Rosa Herzog (Stefanie Reinsperger) in the morning, the forensics team is almost done with their work. Tram driver Hamza Arkadas (Mehmet Daloglu) was stabbed while working his night shift.


That’s the ARD-“crime scene“:

  • “Tatort” is a series of crime films that began broadcasting on West German television in 1970
  • Over 1,100 “Tatort” films have now been released
  • In the early years, an average of one new film per month was released
  • From the early 1990s, the frequency of first broadcasts increased and is now around 35 per year
  • The films are available in the ARD media library


There are no witnesses, but the images from the surveillance camera show how Arkadas was first provoked and then attacked by a young passenger. Although the perpetrator pointed his face aggressively into the camera before fleeing, the recordings are of little help at first.

“Tatort” will be filmed in Dortmund for a total of seven days

“We’re on location in Dortmund for a total of seven days, shooting in the tram depot, among other things,” explains Torsten Reglin.
