Cold Valleys


Two dyed-in-the-wool Austrian police officers from very different sides of the tracks make for an unlikely team to solve the twisted rural crimes in the insular Alpine countryside. Their age difference, innuendo and general teasing make for a charming and often witty friction – they get along in a peculiar way. The lead inspector is a chain-smoking, frustrated macho, and an experienced officer longing for the city. His female partners are young, ambitious and at home in Austrian country etiquette and lifestyle.
