Les Petits Meurtres, D'Agatha Christie: Set 1
| Mystery | Foreign Language | Television
Agatha Christie's masterful storytelling gets a soupçon of French flair in these sexy, witty mysteries. In 1930s France, Superintendent Larosière has a passion for beautiful women and solving cases, while hapless young inspector Lampion just tries to keep up. And in the mid-50s, ultra-suave Commissioner Laurence unravels the knottiest crimes. These French adaptations are a fresh, stylish twist on classic Christie tales.
