Cast[edit]

  • Cezary Pazura as Deputy Cezary "Czarek" Cezary - the main character of the series. Czarek is a nervous, eccentric and unpleasant policeman who always gets into trouble while trying to solve problems. He was previously in a relationship with his classmate Jola who currently works as a prostitute. Czarek joins the group in the first episode and is mistaken for being the new Station Chief. Because of his attitude he's always in the Chief's bad book and is promised to never get promoted. He is an orphan and has two sisters - a twin one and a younger one named Agnieszka of whom he has custody. Initially Czarek doesn't reciprocate Kasia's feelings towards him, but eventually falls in love with her in episode 29. He is the only character to appear in all episodes. According to Cezary Pazura Czarek's personality was inspired by John Cleese's character Basil Fawlty.

He is a widower and a communist and has his position due to his contacts. He once saved Bolesław Bierut's life with a heavy machinegun stored in the station. He doesn't like Czarek from the beginning and tries anything to get rid of him. In his cabinet he has a poster of Janosik, which is an allusion to Perepeczko's most famous role.
