Expect the usual violence, gunfights and general mayhem on the streets of suburban Paris.

Not as advertised France's answer to The Wire but France's answer to 'The Shield' Series 3 is on a par with Series 1 and better than Series 2 which did get a little unbelievable at times. Series 3 has a number of plot lines, the first involves a war between various groups of the Russian and Armenian Mafia, the second involves a young women who has a grudge against Caplan and enlists Vogel to get her revenge. Expect the usual violence, gunfights and general mayhem on the streets of suburban Paris. There are also a number of flashbacks to the time when Max was still alive and in charge of the squad. Eddie and Walter are still as tough as ever but Rox shows sights of cracking under the strain. As per the first two series this one also ends on a cliff hanger which means hopefully there will be a series 4.
One concern however is watching Braquo and Spiral does France not have any French gangsters or are they all North African or East European?
