The hard-hitting, stylish and critically acclaimed French police thriller returns for a second series as Pierre Clement and Police Captain Laure Berthaud descend into the paranoid rivalries of the drug trafficking underworld.I thought BBC4 might have shown it as part of the recent "euro sleuth" series.
Unflinchingly realistic and nail-bitingingly tense, the series follows the investigators into the dark and uncompromising world of organised crime.
As a seemingly isolated case of urban violence grows in complexity and danger, each new piece of evidence unearths a duplicitous world of international trafficking, informers, double lives and arms dealing.
Each with a different vision of justice, each with their own personal demons, the characters become ever darker, disillusioned and warped.
As the heart-racing suspense builds, an audacious plan to strike at the heart of the crime network means that the slightest slip will result in certain death.
