Johann Friedrich von Allmen, played by Heino Ferch, is a sophisticated art thief turned amateur detective in two humorous 90-minute mysteries debuting today on subscription streamer MHz Choice.
Allmen is accompanied on his missions by a trusty valet (Samuel Finzi). He also likes to talk directly to you, the viewer, aka “breaking the fourth wall.”
Allmen: The Secret of the Dragonflies and Allmen: The Pink Diamond, both of which originally ran in Germany in 2017, are based on novels by Swiss author Martin Suter. A third film in the series, Allmen: The Mystery of the Dahlias, is expected to debut in Germany later this year.
