Hawaii Five-0 - An elite
state police division of the Hawaiian State
Police investigating "organized crime, murder,
assassination attempts, foreign agents, felonies
of every type" on the police drama HAWAII
The Hawaii Five-O headquarters was the base of
operation for Det. Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord)
who battled criminals of the Hawaiian underworld
and reported directly to Governor Philip Grey
Assisting McGarrett were:
James MacArthur as Det.
Danny "Danno" Williams
Kam Fong as Det. Chin Ho
Zulu as Det. Kono Kalakaua
as Det. Ben Kokua
Harry Endo as Che Fong.
McGarrett's chief nemesis was criminal genius Wo
Fat (played by Khigh Dhiegh) a Red Chinese agent
in charge of the entire Pacific Asiatic theatre.
At the end of each episode, McGarrett caught the
bad guys and proclaimed his trademark
catchphrase "Book 'em Danno."
The Five-O building seen on the series was
actually the Iolani Palace, a white stone
Italian Renaissance edifice built in 1882 for
King Kalakaua. It was once the seat of the
Hawaii's state government but has since been
turned into a museum. This historical landmark
is located at the corner of King and Richards
Streets in Honolulu, Hawaii. See alsoAUTOMOBILES: "Hawaii Five-O Car"
