Storyline

In Episode 1, The Killing Attempt, police detective Davide Licata survives badly wounded, so much so that his personal and love life will be affected. In Episode 2, The Core, he is tempted by the General directing the Government's "nucleous of operations and investigations (NOI)", a secret service built to do the dirty anti-crime jobs that the police can't do. In Episode 3, The Man of the Letters, exposes the hideout of Tani Cariddi in deep Africa - and again, the retired detective and the retired criminal must come to grips with violent action in Europe. In Episode 4, The Trap, not one but several traps are set from both sides of the law. In Episode 5, Codename: West, a desperate chase is given by The Core and two countries magistrates to catch the new drug lords that are aiming at deluging drugs into Europe's Eastern countries from a former Nazi concentration camp in the West. In Episode 6, A Secret Is Revealed, the detective exposes and destroys the man who secretively had taken ... Written by Artemis-9

behind the scene
18 January 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

root of crime. that is subject. and the manner to present it is really inspired. in a kind of parable, secret services, policy space, mafia are parts of labyrinth. the tension is same. same - interesting acting of Vittorio Mezzogiorne. in fact, this series is proof of science to create a story in which precision is basic virtue. result - a detailed map not of links between different pieces of crime but map of society. so, after many scenes of battle, the evil , like the good side of film are reflected grace of basic structure. and the exercise is realistic in a very interesting manner. because most important ingredient remains courage to suggest the real state of facts. not only in Italy. because fiction has skin of reality.
