When cop Niklas Tanner arrives in the (fictional) Franconian border town of Eisenstein, he finds a community divided. About a decade ago, a child was murdered - her body never found. A simple soul confessed - case closed. The lead investigator back then, Josef Altendorf, was retired soon after raising doubts about the conviction. His successor, Wilhelm Michel, ensures the case stays closed; he knows only too well what worms would crawl out if that particular can were opened again...
An off-beat mix of police procedural, Heimatfilm and revenge flick whose most memorable character is a smart young sister in the blue brotherhood, Evelin Fink, played with cleverness, fresh sexiness and a fury all her own by the exquisite Anja Schiffel. Das unsichtbare Mädchen is already worth seeing for the scene in which she suddenly explodes in Tanner's face and a verbal bitch-slapping contest turns into a martial arts duel almost to the death. Quite stunning.
