This TV mini series is structured in four autonomous episodes, inspired by as many novels by Valerio Varesi. The scripts were written by Silvia Napoletano and Angelo Pasquini. The serials were directed by Riccardo Donna with Luca Barbareschi as the leading actor. Each of the films in the series focuses on an investigation carried out by inspector Soneri, the head of the police squad in Ferrara. Soneri is a maverick loner in his work and in his private life.

He is helped by a tightly knit group of a few loyal colleagues who make up a separate unit within the police headquarters. Soneri’s investigations concern a series of murders each very different from the other, each hiding a disquieting mystery, that brings to light the tragic and bitter, surprising and grotesque nature of the hard-working and apparently quiet world of the Po river region, one of Italy’s richest and fully-developed zones.

Following in the steps of the great literary and cinematic detectives of the past, the restless Soneri does not just identify the culprits. It is as if around the person of the murderer there is a spider’s web of different events, of shared responsibilities that makes the murder the rotten fruit of an environment where time has layered resentments, injustices never remedied and a thirst for revenge.
