A good, meaty series becomes even more chewy as top cop Laure and her raggle-taggle bunch of colleagues (and what a disreputable lot they are) stumble across something deeply unpleasant.
The body of a teenage girl is found on a building site – it’s a golden rule of crime dramas that where there’s a digger, there will be a body – which appears to have links with Laure’s investigation into the murder and dismembering of a police officer.
Despite the remarkable territoriality of French detectives, who according to
are always scrapping between themselves over whose case is whose, Laure’s gang discover something deeply unsavoury, with a strong stench of conspiracy at very high levels.
There’s a dramatic chase at the Gard du Nord when the team home in on a possible witness, and there’s a spot of recreation for Laure and her attack dog Gilou.
A teenage girl is found dead, and Laure is convinced there is a link to the Mercier murder, but proof remains elusive. Meanwhile, Tintin's misbehaving son becomes a cause for concern, and Josephine cracks ahead of a crucial court appearance. French crime drama, starring Caroline Proust.
