This French TV sensation is a dark and labyrinthine Parisian crime drama with shades of CSI, The Wire and 24. Captain Laure Berthaud’s team is confronted with a group of ultra-left activists advocating urban guerilla warfare, while lawyer Pierre Clément tackles organised crime and Judge Roban investigates flaws in the legal system.

Introduced by actor Grégory Fitoussi
