And often, it is only she whose watchful eye manages to catch the details that eventually lead to solving crimes. Without her participation of the strange death of the director of thriving "Autlink" would have been qualified as a simple accident. However demanding Shvetsova insists on forensic expertise and establishes the true cause of death of Nikanorov.

Thus, having begun the investigation of the murder of the owner of the collection of antique coins Florinskaya - she pretty quickly discovers that the prime suspect, whose "candidacy" is insistently being suggested to her by the relatives and friends of the deceased, has actually nothing to do with this crime.

In some cases, the work of the investigator comes to scrutinizing all evidence collected at the crime scene; and sometimes becomes a real puzzle.
