A ten-part Australian police drama recounting the investigation of the bombing of the state police headquarters, loosely based around a real case in the mid 1980's. Aided by extensive research into police techniques, the show was lauded as one of the most realistic depictions of real police investigation techniques, including surveillence as well as forensics, as well as an involving storyline.

Notable for its dark visual tone, as well as its no-holds-barred attitude to violence as well as language (which was far, far earthier than supposedly dark police dramas from the US at the time and since), the show spawned a second ten-part series as well as a spinoff series, Janus devoted to the machinations of court cases.
