Based on Crooked House, a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie first published in the US by Dodd and Mead Company in March 1949, and published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club on 23 May of the same year.
In 1930s France, Superintendent Larosière has a passion for beautiful women and solving cases, while hapless young inspector Lampion just tries to keep up. Later series, are set in the mid-'50s, where suave Commissioner Laurence unravels knotty crimes with the help of reporter Alice. Written by
The other reviews say it all. I am a longtime Christie fan and love these humorous, clever, modern adaptations. Yes, some artistic liberties have been taken, but all the better to set it apart from other versions. See this link for the complete list of episodes. You'll see that Set 1 only includes 7 of the 29 already produced episodes. Neither does Set 1 contain the first 7 episodes, but skips down the list. I can hardly wait to see what comes next, but it appears that Set 1 is the only version released in the US. S'il vous plaît, hurry with subsequent sets!
