About Inspector Alun Ryga
Ryga is a former German prisoner-of-war. His ship was seized by a German Raider in 1941 as a result of which he spent the rest of the war incarcerated in MILAG, (Marine Internierten Lager). Here he had to learn how to cope with the uncertainty, fear and deprivations of forced incarceration with no option but to wait, hope and pray that the war would soon be over and the Nazis would be defeated.
His experience has made him observant, analytical and reflective. It has also given him insights into his fellow man. He’s witnessed compassion, cruelty, cowardice and heroism, mental breakdown and despair. He’s made a promise to himself that whatever happens after the war he’ll keep an open mind and never judge.His experience at sea, and as a prisoner-of-war, have made him unique in his approach to solving coastal based crimes.
