I think it was money that changed him, as gold changed the impatient alchemists.
12 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An engineer, Trinidad Soler (Joaquín Barrueco), at a nuclear power plant is found dead for no apparent reason. Two experts from the Guardia Civil (Ingrid Rubio & Roberto Enríquez) are brought in to find out why.

The obvious story is that he just mixed cocaine, alcohol and tranquilizers and his heart gave out while he was with a pro, who took off afterwards. However, obvious would end the mystery at less than 30 minutes, and wouldn't make a good episode of Law and order.

But the pro turns up dead after the case is closed and they find enough to reopen it. It seems that Soler and his wife made a lot more money than they declared on their taxes.

The more they dug, the more confusing it got. But they put it all together in a nice package at the end.

Rubio & Enríquez were excellent partners, and it would be good to see them together again.
