Angelika Schnell is a chaotic police woman. She trusts her inner voice more than facts and that leads to curious conclusions. That also leads always to discussions with her husband - forensic Stefan Schnell - and her two team-assistants Franitschek and Maja. Written by
Angelika Schnell (the name is German for fast, so the title has double meaning) is head of a Wiena homicide squad and a chameleon personality. One minute she is a typical single-mom driving the kids to school, next a top professional no-nonsense boss, a flirting femme fatale, a tough Bruce Willis style action hero. But most important she can put herself inside the victims mind and feel the circumstances leading to the crime. There is a very human touch to the characters dealing with everyday problems inside these very thrilling murder-mysteries. The puzzle to solve the mysteries are realistic and well put together and real brain teasers.
