Third film based on Boris Akunin's "Priklucheniya Erasta Petrovicha Fandorina" series of novels.

A high-ranking official is killed on a train by an assassin calling himself State Counsellor Erast Fandorin. Of course, the killer is not the real Fandorin (Menshikov) -- who is summoned to solve the murder -- but an anarchist named Green (Konstantin Khabensky), who is in contact with a double agent working within the state department.
Fandorin's task is to hunt down Green and his cronies and sniff out the rat. Fandorin investigates a selection of suspects, at one point disseminating misinformation to see who's the leak.
On the spot of crime killer left dagger with the mysterious abbreviation "BG". "BG" - this is the autograph of the members of mysterious combat group. Who leads mysterious "BG"?
Soon to the aid to Fandorin's from Petersburg arrives vice director of the department of the police prince Pozharskiy. With its appearance the history assumes the most unexpected turning.
