Juliane Frisse of pulse noticed that were "the stars not the actor but the pompous Department Store and the period costumes", but missed "fine intellectual wit and razor-sharp punch lines, wrapped in an old-fashioned expression." For Marcel Pohlig of is the series “worth seeing”. The “impressive pictures” and the brilliant “acting by Jeremy Piven” are praised. Ulrike Frenkel from the Stuttgarter Zeitung criticizes the fact that "many thin narrative strands are woven into a colorful, yet not exactly surprising braid" and still considers the television series to be an "interesting TV change from the eternal crime thrillers on all channels".
