Detective Samovarov



The series is based on the popular crime novels by N. Goncharenko.

The 12-episode series is set in a modern-day provincial town.

One day Nastya, who calls herself a “hair stylist”, disembarks from a passing train. Soon she finds a job at the local barber’s shop and ends up in the center of the town’s life. The clientele consists of women, and each one of them has her own version of everything that happens in town. And when what happens is a murder... You only need to compare “testimonies” and make proper conclusions.

So every time a murder or a theft is committed, Nastya finds herself in the epicenter of investigation. Despite her sharp wits she wouldn’t have been able to wrap up a single case if it hadn’t been for Samovarov, a retired police operative. Samovarov is a charismatic, staunch and reliable person. He’s the central character of the series.

Samovarov and Nastya tackle a variety of cases. Murders, thefts, scams. But each time the duo wins in their fight against all kinds of criminals.
