An offbeat story for this top quality TV series. Have you read the plot line? It doesn't spoil anything, and that's better. Many elements are not told, so that you may find out by yourself. A gangster story again, with the overwhelming jazzy score, where you are surprised to watch the lead gang boss disguised in Napoleon, no less folks. Gang leader whose life is put in jeopardy by his associates or former colleagues. One more time, characterization is very well described for such a underrated TV show, totally unknown here, in France. Surprising plots and sub plots for sub characters, and not only for the lead detectives and commissioner.
