Inspired by true events and supported by the expertise of leading members of the police, this new crime series focuses on police work in exceptional situations such as attacks, kidnappings or rampages. At the centre of the action is police leader Verena Klausen (Henny Reents), who has to assert herself not only in the fight against the perpetrators, but also to deal with the tension between the predominantly male cultures of police and politics. She and her team are confronted with various degrees of narcissism, paranoia and sociopathy during their extraordinary missions. So, it is not only about violence and counter-violence, but about morality that needs to be summoned in seemingly hopeless situations.
