Dead Beautiful
28 February 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

This French crime drama features nine self-contained stories. In each Police Commissioner Martin, a Parisian detective, and his team investigate various murders. Unusually for such a series in most episodes the identity of the killer is not hidden from the viewer. The stories are nicely varied with some fairly original murders; in one a killer targets women with a crossbow and in another the killer shoots seven people on a bus with a silenced weapon before getting off unnoticed.

Thierry Godard, best known in the UK as 'Spiral's' Gilou, does a fine job as Martin and he is ably supported by a fairly small cast of regular characters as well as those who only appear in single episodes. One might think that having the viewer know the killer's identity would be a problem but frequently it serves to raise the tension as we can see what they are doing to make things difficult for the police. The cases are interesting and feature some surprises and away from the cases Martin has a somewhat complicated love life. The only real disappointment was the sudden feel to the ending of the final episode; it felt as though more episodes were planned but not made.

These comments are based on watching the series in French with English subtitles.
