Monsters of the Shore (Detectives from the Holy Trinity)


MONSTERS OF THE SHORE is the fourth and second-last season of the television mini-series from the cycle DETECTIVES FROM THE HOLY TRINITY (The Case of the Exorcist, Blue Shadows, Five Dead Dogs, Monsters of the Shore, Living Targets). This three-part detective story takes place in two timelines: shortly before the Velvet Revolution at the end of the communist era in the late eighties, and in the present day. In the first period the case is being dealt with by the crime division of communist Czechoslovakia under Major Voženil. In the present day Marie Výrová is uncovering the shortcomings of the investigation by the police of that time and points out the reasons that led to them. The detective story crosses over into the genres of horror and psychological family drama. It portrays the destruction of relationships in a family tainted by a long-past, incomprehensibly cruel crime.
