This noir detective series is based on the novels of Maurizio De Giovanni and is set in a vivid contemporary Naples. After a serious case of corruption, the tiny Pizzofalcone police station in the old centre of Naples, is about to close. However, before this happens police headquarters sends some new officers, recruited from other districts. The team of five policemen seems improbable and at the outer fringes of legality, just like the colleagues they have replaced, from whom they immediately inherit the nickname "I Bastardi". However, a murder case in the district starts a process by which everyone discovers, and above all the officers themselves, that they are still up to the job of being police officers, and actually ... very good ones.
