The man from Moscow finds himself teamed up with a gruff, seemingly honest inspector named Grushko in the investigation of the murder of a famous journalist. To the St. Peters burg cops, and in particular the single-minded Grushko, the crime is obviously the work of the Russian Mafia, a combative and bloodthirssty league of Georgian, Azerbaijani, Ukrainian, and Chechen criminals who deal in everyting from fake Rolexes to stolen meat.
