Grazhdanin nachalnik is a Russian 2001 detective TV series. Investigator of town prosecutor's office Pavel Nikolaevich Pafnutyev (Yuriy Stepanov) confronts local organised crime net, from ordinary robbers to corrupt high rank officials.
The series was followed by two sequels in 2005 and 2006.
Note: the original title cannot be translated to English. While "grazhdanin" means "citizen", and "nachalnik" means "chief" or "superior", a direct translation of the whole phrase is senseless. "Grazhdanin nachalnik" is a Russian language idiom meaning law enforcement personnel. It comes from the form of address adopted from the early Soviet times between law enforcers and arrestees or convicts. The usual form of address in the USSR was "Tovarish" (comrade), and "Grazhdanin" (citizen) was used in cases where it was necessary to emphasize the legal distance between people.
The following weapons were used in the television series Grazhdanin nachalnik:
Rakhimych's henchman "Valet" (Sergey Pinchuk) uses an FN Barracuda revolver during the robbery.
