Based on the bestselling novel by Rita Falk, Franz Eberhofer is a Bavarian outback cop who lives on the family farm with his grandma, who cooks like only a grandma can, his father and his brother's Thai in-laws. The local school principal who initially had simply gone missing is found run over by a train. Most people think it was suicide. Franz thinks it was murder.

"The Franz Eberdorfer stories bear little resemblance to most provincial fare. His caustic but never cynical world view, his pot smoking, Beatles addicted father, his ex-partner who summarily shot a child molester in the balls. His life is much more rock 'n' roll than oom-pah-pah... He inhabits an anarchic world, full of extremely unusual characters."
