Backwoods Crime now streaming!


Austrian mystery Backwoods Crime Season 2 premieres October 3rd, 2023 in the U.S. and Canada on MHz Choice!

Premieres October 3, 2023!

A crime anthology series like no other, Backwoods Crime (ORF) is set in the breathtaking Austrian countryside and features murder, mystery – and plenty of surprises! Variety is the name of the game here: like French favorites Murder In… and Perfect Murders, Backwoods Crime focuses on a different set of investigators every episode. However, the tone of each story can be very different – a gritty, hard-hitting crime plot one week (think Murder by the Lake) can be followed up by a quirky character-based story (think Homicide Hills) the next. In that regard, Backwoods Crime has more in common with the tonally disparate series under the Tatort banner than the French shows mentioned above. One thing they all have in common, though – gorgeous scenery!

This season opener takes us out of the backwoods, however, and into the city – Vienna, to be precise. Tobias Moretti (Inspector Rex, Camorra – Code of Honor) stars as a hard-boiled cop with questionable loyalties who has to juggle a high-profile crime investigation and spending the Christmas holidays with his neglected twelve-year-old son!
