Behzat C. (Erdal Besikcioglu) is a rough and violent police officer who is the head of the homicide department in Ankara (the capital city of Turkey). Although Behzat C. graduated from the police academy in 1985, he works at the same position for years due to the fact that he does not care about his superiors. He acts independently and sometimes he does not follow the regulations and rules. For this reason, he encounters with the suspensions and reprimands most of the time.

In the homicide department, Behzat C. works with Harun (Fatih Artman), Hayalet (Inanc Konukcu), Akbaba (Berkan Sal), Selim (Hakan Hatipoglu), and Eda (Seda Bakan). Later on, Cevdet (Berke Uzrek) and Emre (Engin Ozturk) also join the team. As a team, they try to solve murder cases with their own style. At the same time, they try to handle bureaucratic burdens and political pressure.

At the beginning of the story, the daughter of Behzat C. is found dead. Even though it looks like a case of suicide at first glance, it turns out to be a murder. While Behzat C. and his team try to solve the secrets behind her murder, they are involved in various murder cases.

In this story, you will explore an exciting detective story. Will Behzat C. and his team manage to find the killer of Behzat C.’s daughter? Will the truth about murder cases be revealed successfully?

  1. It is off Netflix USA and I was half-way through the series…so mad. Is it streaming anywhere with english subtitles? Help…

  2. Began watching this TV Series on the recommendation of another viewer. I must say that I do not generally enjoy watching cop shows but decided to give it a try. I thought it would be interesting to compare a Turkish cop show versus an American cop show. I found it to be about the same as it was about death, crime, corruption and violence. I was surprised to see that the lead man playing the character, Behzat, was such a rag-tag police employee. He was a Captain of a team of police detectives but he looked like a homeless man. He needed a haircut, shave and a bath most of the time. His clothes were too large and hung on his body. I find it hard to believe that his superiors would have allowed him to dress this way. I understand he was a rogue cop but he was not working undercover, he showed up at the office every day. Also, there were several women showing interest for this character which I found unlikely unless they were desperate. I just did not get it. Erdal is a good actor and did a good job playing the part but I had a issue with him looking so bad all the time. At least, he was a good policeman and was honest and always fought for Justice. The actors playing his team of policemen were also rag-tag but good. They were loyal and always ready to follow their Captain. However, if Harum ate as much as his character showed, he would have weighed 500 pounds. The food addiction was a bit over the top. I watched 25 episodes in the beginning and then skipped and watched the last six episodes. That was all that I could take of this show. One thing I have noticed in all of the Turkish T.V. shows is that there is a lot of crime, corruption, murders, gangs, Mafia shown in almost all of them. Is it for the SHOCK and AWE aspect? Also, the guy that played Behzat’s brother is quite annoying.

  3. Thank you so much for adding Inanç. His presence enriches every team he is cast with.
    Also, hold down the alt key and using the data pad, type 135 for ç and do alt 128 for Ç
    Also Ayça Varlier is a lovely actress…If I can encourage her to study comedians and their timing and also to trust that being in the moment is like being in love…all fades away around you and you are you. Be you Ayça! You deserve it. Don’t worry about being “on”…just be you.
    I love you guys at I do!

  4. Thank you I really appreciate it!
    I love this series and the brilliant writing which includes characters of depth. not 2 dimensional cartoons of personality. Also the cultural events are interesting to see, from weddings to funerals. Behzat Ç remains my all time favorite!

  5. I thought you were going to add Inanç Konukçu as Hayalet who was born on November 11, 1985 in Ankara, Turkey.
    He is a vital actor in this show. How could he be forgotten! And you didn’t include in the paragraph abouve about the homicide bureau (cinayet bürosu), that Bahzat Ç works with the very important Eray Eserol as Tahsin and Hakan Hatipoglu as Selim. Instead you mention Berke Uzret who doesn’t join the team until the end.
    I thought you were going to give Inanç Konukçu his own page after I mentioned that he was a very important actor also in Kaçak as Doktor Nazmi. (
    Thank you for giving us this forum to comment. Turkey had such great actors. Please don’t forget Inanç Konukçu.
    Teşekkür ederim.
