The series takes place mainly in Frankfurt and Berlin and there are some nice scenes in each city. The star of the series is 25-year old Paula Beer who does an excellent job portraying an intelligent young banker who will do anything it takes to make it in a highly competitive male-dominated environment. Luxembourgish actress Désirée Nosbusch plays an attractive senior banker of equal cunning and ambition.
The pace is fast and dialogue is smart. The Guardian correctly noted that a “defiant amorality pervades the whole business” depicted in the series.
