Quotes:
Inspector Lunge:I already know what happened. I know about Inspector Zeman's connection to the secret police and his brutal death. Prague's police chief and two officers were poisoned to death.
[taps fingers]
Inspector Lunge:The two agents who were sent to tail you were found shot to death. And you're the chief suspect in all the incidents that have taken place. Considering all the evidence stacked against you, you're the culprit.
Jan Suk:I'm not! I didn't do anything!
Inspector Lunge:Then it could be Grimmer, the tall, thin, man who was talking with Inspector Zeman the day before he was killed?
Jan Suk:It's not Mr. Grimmer, either! He wouldn't do something like that.
Inspector Lunge:In that case, who is the killer? You know, don't you? You know who the killer is, right?
Jan Suk:W-What are you talking about? If I knew, I wouldn't be in this state. Deceived by so many people... set up to take the fall... even being on the run from the police... I've had enough of this! I don't want to be betrayed anymore!
Inspector Lunge:You're a detective, aren't you? If you're a detective, then you have to calmly dissect the situation. Even if it's painful, you must calmly uncover the truth.

a medical - detective - crime drama, 16 February 2005
Author: lion-41 from United States

This is a great series so far - I've watched up to episode 34 as of this posting. Just as the story seems to be getting slow, or losing direction, something sinister happens that pulls it all back together and on track.

The story revolves around Dr. Tenma, a genius Japanese neural surgeon living in Germany during the late 20th century. Its hard to say much else without ruining the subtle twists of the story that unfold through the series.

There is a lot of discovery in this series... lots of people doing detective work, including the viewer.
