Istanbul Homicide is a thrilling detective series starring Erol Sander as quick-thinking detective Mehmet Özakin as he fights against crime in the city of 15 million inhabitants on the Bosporus.
Moving between the Orient and the West, between high society and the underworld, Özakin always solves his cases with his own inimitable, easy charm. Whether it's a matter of art theft, people trafficking or corruption, he has at his side his confident wife Sevim and his assistant Mustafa Tombul.
The series was the first time that Erol Sander appeared on camera against the backdrop of the city of his birth, Istanbul. Now nine new episodes have been filmed, and with constantly high viewing figures, Istanbul Homicide has become one of the most successful detective shows on ARD.
