10/10 and I do not say this lightly. Best police show ever. The gold standard itself.
I've seen many - American, British, Canadian, French, Bulgarian, German, Russian, etc.
This one is the best one. It is better than Law and Order (although very different), better than Undercover (Pod Prikritie), better than Luther, the Bridge (any of them), the Killing (any of them) and so many others. Do not compare this to Braquo - Engrenages is way better.
The first season is a bit amateurish, but as the show goes on, it comes onto its own.
The characters are brilliant and the performances are perfect. The story is great, as are all the subplots. The relationships between the characters are so rich and complex that it does not feel like it's a TV show at all. It's suspenseful, dramatic, funny and sad.
It is not perfect in every way - there might be minor production imperfections here and there, the music/soundtrack is not all that, but the quality of everything else overshadows any minor blemishes.
Simply put - this is the new gold standard for police dramas.
