This was the first in the series to not be based on a May novel, only on his characters. It was not a box office success, unlike previous releases which had been major hits. However, it did launch the career of Uschi Glas as an important actress.[1]

It was shot at the CCC Studios in Berlin and on location in Croatia. The film's sets were designed by Vladimir Tadej.
