Angelica Fast is in her mid-thirties, a divorced single mother – and a successful investigator at Vienna’s criminal investigation department. The good-looking young woman handles the balancing act between her job and parental duties with humour. Even if her teenage twins keep her on her toes, she goes all out for the pursuit of criminals. That professional and private life isn’t always separable, is not least due to her ex-husband, the chief of forensics: Some teasing is part of the daily routine, and it may well happen, that childrearing is discussed on the crime scene. Sentimentality has no room in all this – Angelica Fast knows what she wants and always keeps the facts in sight.
