Crime fans have been waiting longingly for this: Gil Ribeiro’s bestseller “Lost in Fuseta” about an unusual German investigator in Portugal is being filmed in original locations in the Algarve. Leander Lost (Jan Krauter), the exceptional commissioner: As an Asperger’s autist, he has extraordinary abilities such as a photographic memory or an unmistakable radar to determine whether his counterpart is lying. At the same time, he neither understands irony nor can he interpret emotional vibrations during a conversation, and he is unable to lie – which repeatedly presents him with challenges in interpersonal relationships.

As part of a European exchange program, Lost is transferred to the fishing town of Fuseta, where an exciting and tricky case awaits him and his local colleagues: the murder of a private detective, behind which a highly explosive corruption scandal involving the local water supply is hidden. While the investigative duo on site, Graciana Rosado (Eva Meckbach) and Carlos Esteves (Daniel Christensen), is wondering what kind of strange bird the German colleagues have sent them, Lost has to try somehow to fit into the new team – which leads to involuntarily funny, but also dramatic situations. A team-finding of a special kind takes its course … In addition, the beautiful Portuguese Soraia (Filipa Areosa) brings Lost’s meticulously sorted mental hygiene very out of step.
