A.KRÜSS microscopes ensure an authentic setting

For the realization of a scene, acting as well as masks, costumes and stage design requisites are very important. Apart from large objects, such as cars, it is often also a small, carefully selected film requisite that makes a scene look really real.

A.KRÜSS microscopes on the film set of the ARD series "The Secret of the Dead Forest"

This is why our quality microscopes are more and more used at Hamburg film shootings. The newest case for example is the ARD three-part documentary: “The Secret of the Forest of the Dead”, broadcast on: December 2nd/5th & 9th at 8:15 p.m.
The films tell the story of a criminal case that has remained unsolved for almost thirty years.

Matthias Brandt plays LKA boss Thomas Bethge

The plot: In the summer of 1989 Barbara Neder (Silke Bodenbender) disappeared. She is the sister of the high-ranking Hamburg LKA boss Thomas Bethge, played by Matthias Brandt. For a long time this case remained unclosed. Even after his retirement, the LKA boss continues to investigate the disappearance of his sister and comes on to the track of a suspected serial killer.
