    • Synopsis
    • "Glina” directed by Władysław Pasikowski, maker of cult Polish thrillers, is a detective series as well as a story about love, death, and hatred, about emotions so extreme they lead to crime.
      The hero of the series is a forty-something police officer from the homicide department, Andrzej Gajewski (played by Jerzy Radziwiłowicz). Tough, stubborn and disillusioned, he knows anyone can be a criminal, even the nice people who live across the street. He loves his grown-up daughter Julia, but the only living thing that can bear to live with him is his cat. Gajewski works with Artur (Maciej Stuhr) and Jerzy (Robert Gonera).
      "Glina" is a detective series, a story about love, death and hatred, about human emotions so extreme they push us to crime. In the words of screenwriter Maciej Maciejewski: We're not interested in scams where money changes hands so an illicit shipment can cross the border. "Glina" tells a story about human drama. There are times when the hero of the series acts by the book and feels lousy about it. Because "Glina" is also a story about the ambiguity of all value judgements, about how blurred the line between good and evil can be.”
      "Glina" is also a story about how being a cop takes its toll. Police officers often pay a high price for the stress and the extreme situations they deal with every day. That's why the series devotes the same amount of time to their private lives as to the cases they solve.
