Series 2 - 1. Les damnes

No time for weedy recaps as the French bad-cop show blasts back for a second series. Eddie Caplan’s tear-up-the-rules team are taken to task for their misdeeds – by officers who seem to be even worse. And a sweaty, Heat-style gunfight in soulless suburbia introduces us to Braquo’s new gangsters. There’s a higher body count than we’re used to, and one stunningly surreal touch to tell gambler Walter’s story enlivens the colour palette. Otherwise it’s grey, compellingly gritty business as usual, with another corking coup de grâce.
