Having rented a room on Pekarskaya Street from Dr. Kartsev (Vladimir Mishukov), Holmes together with him unravels terrible crimes, despite the opposition of the local police. In St. Petersburg, no one has heard of deduction - the methods of the London detective are not taken seriously. Another assistant to the detective is Sophia (Irina Starshenbaum) from St. Petersburg, whose relationship grows for the Englishman into something more than a joint investigation.
