Criminal Minds è una serie poliziesca incentrata sull'Unità di analisi criminale (BAU) che ha sede presso l'accademia dell'FBI a Quantico, in Virginia. L'unità è composta da psichiatri, psicologi e criminologi in grado di “pensare” come gli S.I., sigla che utilizzano per indicare i “soggetti ignoti” che compiono delitti seriali sui quali sono chiamati ad indagare. La squadra interviene in ogni località degli Stati Uniti ogni qual volta si sospetti che i delitti possano essere opera di un serial killer, lavora stilando un profilo psicologico del S.I. in modo da anticiparne le mosse e catturarlo. La squadra è formata da diversi elementi, ognuno con un suo ruolo ben preciso: c'è chi ha l'incarico di indagare sul campo parlando con le famiglie e relazionandosi con le forze di polizia locale, chi si immedesima nel killer per comprenderlo, chi fa ricerche sui soggetti coinvolti. Ovviamente vengono analizzate anche le relazioni tra i vari personaggi.
