Liebeswirren is a television film from the crime series Tatort . The report produced by Bayerischer Rundfunk was first broadcast on September 28, 2008 on ARD's first program as the 50th case of the investigative team.


Batic and Leitmayr are investigating the Munich gay scene. The body of the photographer Fritz Alt is found on a construction site. His ex-boyfriend Ralf Kleinmann is initially suspected. He could not get over the separation from Alt. The inspectors, supported in their investigations by the new colleague, Chief Inspector Diana Sommerfeld, get into the local gay scene via an Internet chat and finally come across the honest family man Gerd Weißenbach, who was also a lover of Fritz Alt. Batic and Leitmayr pretend to be a gay couple in a club and are able to track down and arrest Ralf Kleinmann, whose innocence soon becomes apparent. It turns out that Kleinmann had informed Gerd Weißenbach's family about his relationship with Alt. The police set a trap for the perpetrator via the chat room and it turns out that Weißenbach's son Werner used his father's chat profile and killed Alt.


The club scene in which Batic and Leitmayr pretend to be a gay couple was filmed in the Munich “New York Club”, which is one of the oldest and still existing gay clubs in Germany. The club opened in the early 1980s. The exterior views were also taken at the entrance to the New York Club. The club at this address no longer exists.


Audience ratings

The first broadcast of Liebeswirren on September 28, 2008 was seen by 7.12 million viewers in Germany and achieved a market share of 21.2% for Das Erste .


"With a lot of comic situations , strong dialogues and an extremely good cast ensemble, director Tobias Ineichen, based on a book by Christian Limmer, creates a humorous and moving anniversary event."

- Spiegel Online

“It's a clear piece of life that is told, not one that needs a surprise to please, or a final punch line. It is, and that is the art, simply played very well. "

- Christopher Keil : Süddeutsche Zeitung

“One would have wished the editorial staff of Bayerischer Rundfunk had a better hand for the anniversary TATORT. The quality of the Munich classics "Frau Bu lacht" or "Viktualienmarkt" does not match the book and direction of "Liebeswirren". "

- Markus Ehrenberg : The Tagesspiegel
