The series is presented by real investigators, crime scene technicians and medical examiners in charge of the original cases. They relate the investigation and explain it step by step. All episodes of the series are based on real murder cases solved by the Vienna police. The real killers were convicted — hence the clear message of the series: “There is no perfect murder. At the end of the day, everyone makes a mistake." Caution! Spotlight Murder is not for the faint of heart.
