The SOKO Hamburg team is led by Chief Commissioner Jan Köhler (Mirko Lang) - a reluctant boss who directs his commissariat from the street, instead of dusting up in the hierarchy of authorities. Together with the ambitious Chief Commissioner Lena Testorp (Anna von Haebler), he forms an opposing, but perfectly coordinated leadership duo. The team is reinforced by Oskar Schütz (Marek Erhardt), the most experienced police officer in the commissariat: an "instinct bull" and a loner. Cem Aladag (Arnel Taci), on the other hand, is a walking Wikipedia encyclopedia whose primary tool is its smartphone, which it can pull faster than others's weapon. Together with Maria Gundlach (Katrin Angerer), he forms the heart of the guard and keeps the shop together in the background. The cases of the SOKO Hamburg range from Ratzeburg over St. Pauli, the Port of Hamburg, the Altes Land to Kehdingen and Dithmarschen. The commissariat is not located in a fancy new building in the HafenCity, but in an old brick building on the outskirts in Finkenwerder - directly on the river Elbe. In addition, the commissars have at their disposal a speedboat at any time, with which they can reach the crime scene on the Elbe the fastest.
