Lapshin, Ivan. Ivan Lapshin was created by the Russian author Yury German and appeared in Ivan Lapshin (1937).

Ivan Lapshin is a Soviet policeman in a rural area of the U.S.S.R. When he is confronted with criminals preying on society, he does not merely solve the crime, he works to integrate the criminals into society so that all men can see that order and labor are the way toward a utopian future. Lapshin lives in a commune with the other policemen, acts as a mentor to the younger policeman, and is rational, serene, and a true Soviet.
