Balthazar: Series 1
Mystery | Drama - Crime | Drama - Police | Mystery - Murder | Television
Suave, smart, and somewhat strange, Raphaël Balthazar (Tomer Sisley, We’re the Millers) can make the dead speak like no one else. As a forensic pathologist in Paris, his unconventional methods and mordant wit clash with the no-nonsense approach of Chief Inspector Hélène Bach (Hélène de Fougerolles, Le secret d'Elise). But together they solve the city’s most disturbing crimes: a dead woman covered in someone else’s blood, mismatched body parts found in the river, a frozen corpse in a truck, and more. Beneath his bon vivant attitude, however, Balthazar remains haunted by the murder of his wife twelve years ago. When new evidence suggests her killer may still be at large, Balthazar must shake off the ghosts of the past to unravel the mysteries of the present. A “solid and inviting crime drama with a charming lead” (Matt Roush, TV Insider), this contemporary French-language series blends humor and heartbreak for “a fresh take” (Drama Quarterly) on the police procedural.
