Episode 1: Hidden Assets

Summary

A routine raid led by Irish Criminal Assets Bureau detective Emer Berry reveals that a small-time drug dealer has been receiving substantial funding from a seemingly untraceable source - not in cash, but in rough diamonds. When the gems are linked to a series of bombings in Belgium, Emer is forced to work with Police Commissioner Christian De Jong. Crime drama, starring Angeline Ball

Review

You might recognise Angeline Ball from her role in the film of The Commitments some years ago. In this smooth Irish-Belgian co-production she plays Sergeant Emer Berry, a Garda detective who specialises in seizing the proceeds of crime – we meet her as she prepares (with a guilty cigarette) to raid a rich drug dealer’s house.

We also meet a hooded man entering – rather easily – an Antwerp fashion show in an ominous way, and a woman who owns a firm of ships’ chandlers. Enough pieces of the jigsaw for you? If not, there’s also far-right politician and a young woman found drowned in a bath with her hands tied.

Not to worry – soon, the fragments slot together and start to form an intriguing picture involving terrorism, diamonds, hedge funds and mildly maverick policing. The story doesn’t rattle along but it cruises nicely and the relationship between Emer and her Belgian oppo looks promising.
