More detailed series description via press release:
A young girl is murdered in a cruel and perverse way on the outskirts of Opole, and police suspect it might be the work of a serial killer. Commissioner Agnieszka Polkowska is assigned the case but, to her distaste, must work with Commissioner Tomasz Mrówiec from the Provincial Headquarters. In Warsaw, entrepreneurial and popular lecturer Piotr lives a bourgeois life with a textbook-perfect family. We quickly learn that it was he who murdered the girl found in the forest, and now he is getting ready for another murder. His next victim is a young, deeply spiritual girl from a small town, frantically trying to find meaning in life. With such high stakes, can Agnieszka and Tomasz find and expose Piotr before it’s too late?
Angel of Death was nominated for Best Fictional Series at the Polish Film Festival and stars Maciej Stuhr who viewers may recognise from Walter Presents: The Teacher.
