Mujeres Asesinas (Killer Women)  is a Mexican drama and psychological thriller television series produced by Pedro Torres. The series is an adaptation of the Argentine series of the same name, produced by Pol-ka from 2005–2008.
Mujeres Asesinas is a series that shows the dark side of women who have been mistreated or abused and become cruel murderers. The series shows how violence and death can overcome the feminine mind.
Each episode shows a different story of a woman who has committed homicide. These women are motivated by multiple passions such as love, hatred, resentment, vengeance, lunacy, despair, fear, anger, addiction, salvation and redemption. Doctor Sofía Capellan and her team of experts try to solve the murders perpetrated by the women.
In the series the Departamento de Investigacion Especializado en Mujeres (Department of Investigation Specializing in Women), is an agency which is in charge of helping women. This agency confronts and resolves brutal crimes in which women are also victims. The Department of Investigation Specializing in Women (DIEM) is an original addition to this version (the Mexican version) as it was not present in the Argentinian version.
