Description edit

The first six-part season followed thy style of a road movie, with main character psychologist Nestor Bukowsky. It premiered in 2013. The Second season focussed on Lieutenant Kuneš.[1]

The series is in the dark style of modern Nordic crime fiction with a slower pace of action. The two seasons of the show are primarily connected by the title character of the criminal investigator Lieutenant Kuneš,[2] who in the second season continues to work with the other main character, Nestor Bukowsky, when new facts emerged in the case of the murder of young Edita Tichá.

In 2013, author Jan Pachl expressed his intention to film a criminal spin-off called Rapl with the main character Kuneš.[3] Czech Television produced and broadcast the new series in 2016.
