Bandit Petersburg (or Gangster Petersburg, Russian: Бандитский Петербург) is a Russian detective television series. It was one of the most successful Russian series of the early 2000s. The series is loosely based on the eight works of Andrei Konstantinov [ru].[1]

The first two parts premiered in May 2000 on the NTV channel. In total, ten seasons were produced, the last of which was broadcast in 2007.[2] The only character who appears in 9 seasons (except the film The Operative), is Lieutenant Colonel Kudasov by Yevgeny Sidikhin.


The series' theme song is The City that isn't there, by singer and composer Igor Kornelyuk, and lyricist Regina Lisits [ru] . Part I of the series also features You're a Stranger To Me by Tatiana Bulanova as a secondary theme.[1]


Although the events of the series are portrayed as taking place in the late 1980s to early 1990s, anachronistic objects such as car models, mobile phones, personal computers, signage and media appear in the series; even gravestones with dates from the late 1990s appear.

Reaction of Konstantinov to the later episodes

Konstantinov said that the series Bandit Petersburg consisted of 7 parts rather than 10, since, in his opinion, Terminal, Dutch Passage and Payback were taken in violation of copyright. Unlike the DVD, these films were broadcast without use of Bandit Petersburg in the title, although the title was listed in channel information.
