1. We are attracted by secrets
The plot, known from the first series, tells the story of the protagonist in the fantasy genre. A forensic clerk and secretly a writer by the will of fate and the famous investigator Guro ends up in Little Russia, where the secret of the brutal murders of young girls is to be revealed.
A sacred secret is hidden in the fate of the prototype of Gogol himself. For a long time the mystery remains unknown to him, causing bewilderment and breaking the psyche

In Dikanka, unthinkable horrors unfold, the blood of mystical victims is shed. And only the brilliant detective Gouraud knows the secret of the Black Horseman.
