Desecrated graves, dead bodies dug up and left arranged in show-homes... Every time, the same ritual: a woman, a man, a teenager, who weren't related but who form a macabre family. Amid the bodies a photo of Paul Maisonneuve is placed, a Crime Squad legend in the North of France, now retired but forced to return to duty. Who is digging up the bodies? Who is leaving them in these show-homes and why?
Young female detective Sandra Winckler, in charge of the case, must work with Paul to find out who is behind these disturbing human tableaus. During her investigation, she will have to delve into Paul's past, always sensing that he is hiding something. Because that's where the truth must lie: somewhere in Paul's past. For the detective and the ex-cop, life will never be the same... For in the shadows is a man who will stop at nothing to satisfy his thirst for a long and drawn-out revenge...

Suddenly, the main characters start behaving rather stupidly... In the first four episodes there were two police professionals (an older male and a young female) competing two show each other who was the smartest and better detective; they both did a good job of this, and it was thrilling to watch them putting their skills to good use.
Halfway through episode 5, they start getting dumb... and stumble into classic clichés that make up the worst of Hollywood productions. It seems the writers ran out of steam and threw the good work they had done, out the window.
SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!
In the last episode, the young woman detective manages to knock-out the bad on a beach, as he was about to shoot another woman. He lies there on the gravel, his gun dropped on the ground. A smart character would get the gun, attend to the wounded woman, call for back-up and an ambulance, right?
What does our heroine do, despite all her previously demonstrated skills? She leaves the gun next to the perp, helps the woman up, and rather than walk to her car a few yards away in a parking lot, decides to flee along the beach in the opposite direction! All the while, she does not call for an ambulance or back-up! They walk for a mile along the beach until they find an abandoned building and decide to hide inside it... Once inside the building, they pick the worst possible place to hide: an underground metal tank, with a trap door as the only way in or out! How stupid can you get?
All the time, the detective is using her phone as a flashlight... but never calls for help.
The bad guy wakes up, picks up his gun that was still lying there beside him, and runs after the two women. He sees them going into the abandoned building and immediately guesses they went into the tank. So he simply closes the door from the outside and leaves them there to die. Inside the tank, they can't get a signal to use the phone... but they could have used the phone anytime before that!
Why did the writers do that? In order to write a big closing scene in which the remaining police officers decide to use a wolf to find the two missing women... The wolf turns from bad guy into good guy, smells his way to where they are, and saves the day! It is an irritatingly stupid cliché that could definitely be much better written.
You easily get use to viewing with sub-titles. Just like the excellent Swedish, Danish and Belgian T.V. series, such as 'The Bridge', 'Salamander' and Wallander.
