2018 French crime drama Crimson Rivers begins this week at SBS On Demand.
This is based on the 2000 feature and best-selling novel.
All eight episodes available to stream. In French with English subtitles.
After the infamous Guernon case in the mid-2000s, Pierre Niémans was shelved as a teacher at the Officer Training Academy, and ended up being recruited by someone at CBVC (Central Bureau for Violent Crime). During a mission, he stumbles upon his best and most free-spirited student Camille Delaunay. From there, they start working together.
Niémans and Camille are called out to all parts of France to solve complex cases which all involve a weird brutality far beyond the capacity of local police departments to respond. They are the emergency response team, but they are street cops, products of the city, experts in big-league crime. Familiarity with human evil is in their DNA.
A breathtaking and gripping series set in a world full of gruesome criminal cases, sadistic killers, creepy rituals, and mysterious incidents.
