It’s bleak and inhospitable again in Zurich, so dark that one can easily lose the desire for a crime-thriller evening. The fourth edition of “Tatort” with commissioners Isabel Grandjean and Tessa Ott is huge again: “Risks With Side Effects” (Sunday, SRF 1, 8:05 p.m.) is a billion-dollar business for the placebo company Argon. His expensive drug, Volmilia, is about to be approved, but it does serious damage to a girl.

The condition is neuromyelitis optica, an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. In recent years, Roche has developed an effective drug against it. Drone images of tall buildings can be seen many times at the “crime scene”.
