When the body of a French politician is found between the UK and France, detectives Karl Roebuck (Dillane) and Elise Wassermann (Poésy) must put cultural differences aside to achieve their shared goal – to catch the murderer. They soon realise that this is not just a single murder and that they have a serial killer on their hands. Can they work together to solve the crime?
When a prominent French politician is found dead on the border between the UK and France detectives Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane) and Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy) are sent to investigate on behalf of their respective countries. However as the case takes a surreal turn a series of elaborate killings force the French and British police into uneasy partnership. Despite cultural divides they find common ground in the race to stop a serial killer who has no boundaries. Using increasingly ingenious methods to highlight five ‘truths’ about our morally bankrupt society the murderer draws Karl and Elise ever deeper into a powerful personal and deadly agenda. A compelling and sophisticated thriller set against the backdrop of Europe in crisis from the makers of Broadchurch Spooks and Life on Mars.
