Another good episode for this tremendous TV show.

This not the kind of usual topic that we are used to see in this series, mostly urban. It takes mainly place on sea or harbors. The story of a big scale kidnapping involving business exécutives and planned by a masterminded criminal. Exciting, taut, a very tense story that glues you to your seat. This is this time more thriller than drama, the exact contrary of the previous episode which I commented yesterday. I won't even tell this is a noir scheme nor expose. No, thriller is the accurate word. There are not so many "thrillers" in this TV series, mostly noir dand drama oriented.
