20 years: Maria Furtwängler has played Charlotte Lindholm at the crime scene in Lower Saxony for a long time. There are many successful Tatort series out there, but the longevity and sheer popularity of her character is what sets her apart.

There is no end in sight – as Maria Furtwängler herself says, because she still had a lot of desires and ideas for this role. I have spoken to Norddeutscher Rundfunk for over 20 years of service at the crime scene.

20 years of service as a spirited detective Charlotte Lindholm

Maria Furtwängler has played Detective Charlotte Lindholm 29 times, who is often shown to be very direct, and very irritable in her investigations. The first time in 2002 was something special. Until then, nearly all crime scene inspectors were male. Then came Furtwängler and Andrea Swatsky in Frankfurt and Eva Matisse in Constance. All in 2002. “This was undoubtedly a spirit of optimism, so the crime scene also tried to make it more feminine. In general, the image is not as feminine as it might seem. The other two stopped long ago, but I still “stand silent,” she says. Maria Furtwängler sings.

She is very interested in gender equality. Its founder, MaLisa, was able to investigate the proportion of women in television roles. She says she is getting better. There is another realization. “The numbers show that women in television and in literature are allowed to age. Not by a long shot like men. But the picture is changing there too,” she says.

Maria Furtwängler: “I love this Charlotte Lindholm character”

Longtime in Hanover, Furtwangler and Lindholm are now investigating Göttingen. This is one of the many dramatic changes over the years. The actress says this is the only way the role can stay fresh. “I love this character, I love the look. At one point I also had a crisis with her, with the crime scene. For me, the crime scene has become a very powerful place in recent years where I can also contribute a lot to my own thoughts.”

One of her favorite issues was a double crime scene: “The Throwaway Girl” and “The Golden Band”: “There we sparked a discussion about forced prostitution and human trafficking. These were milestones that had great power for me and I’m proud of.”

Or something completely different, like the Lindenberg crime scene of Detlev Back’s “Everything Comes Back” last Christmas.

– Everything is fine with you honey?
– you are doing? Mr. Lindenberg?
Hard times, everyone has to go through. But you will see. At some point everything will be easy again.

20 years from the crime scene of Furtwangler. There are people at work who don’t want that, and don’t want to be tied down in some role. But that didn’t happen to her, says Fortwängler. “Actually no. I’m also not someone who takes things very strategically. I’ve let myself be surprised by things that come up.”

Maria Furtwängler: “I’d like to make a musical crime scene.”

After 20 years, she can help define what surprises Charlotte Lindholm will experience. She had some ideas. “I would like to do a musical crime scene. That would be ridiculous. Charlotte Lindholm is a character who really likes to be in control. And of course it’s a pleasure to put her in situations where she loses control. That is where it is fun.”

Similar real detectives are retiring at the age of 63. Charlotte Lindholm is only 54 years old, according to Maria Furtwängler. So she still had time to try new things with this role.
