DSU Martin Schenk

DSU Martin Schenk’s universally feared steel-trap mind and intuition have been transferred from Complaints to the Serious and Serial Unit, where he heads a successful and formidable team.

Schenk always dreamed of such a unit but never pursued his ambition for the sake of his wife’s peace of mind. After she passed away he finally accepted his calling.

Remaining always suspicious, always pragmatic, he plays the game. Simultaneously his loyalty to his team and to Luther is unwavering.

Though Luther’s unorthodox methods and disregard for personal safety continue to challenge Schenk, he knows his team is stronger with Luther back in the fold.
