The "smart guy", is a former policeman. Since his youth he always "wanted to be a man in uniform running over the fields with a submachine gun." He first enrolled in a military collage but had give up the studies due to health problems. He became a police inspector. He solved on average 13 cases per month (two times more than the fixed norm) and travelled to distant places all over the country, including above the Arctic Circle. After the collapse of the Soviet empire, he returned to Ukraine to work as a police inspector in rural areas. Now retired, he still dreams of great criminal cases and investigations.
