A wonderful German TV series, filmed in Venice, based on the book series written by a well-known American author, living in Venice, Donna Leon!
The cast is personable and likeable! Acting is superb! The mystery stories are fascinating and intriguing! The cinematography of Venice is breathtakingly gorgeous!
I highly recommend this Donna Leon series!

I don't know why people are put off by a German language dialogie! It is amusing, actually! It was originally filmed for the German audience by a German film company, after all! The English subtitles are easy to read! A Wonderful series!

Germans in Venice (not so far fetched after all)

German merchants arrived in Venice in the 13th century and contributed to the wealth of the city. Fondaco dei Tedeschi was their trading centre and restricted living quarters and they stayed for many centuries.

As well, Venice has been (what we now call a multicultural society) for many centuries: Apparently, "at the end of the Middle ages, foreigners constituted no fewer than 15,000 to 20,000 persons, and perhaps many more, out of a population of around 100,000 to 110,000.[17]." This included "foreigners" from the Veneto as well as elsewhere from Italy but also persons from southeastern Europe and Greece. The largest two identifiable groups of foreigners were Greeks and Germans. Please see this essay: "Venice and its minorities":

This is a silly attempt at bringing off Italian characters using the German language -- a cultural misfitting.
