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
When released in English-speaking countries, the episodes featuring the characters Larosière and Lampion are under the translated title: "The Little Murders of Agatha Christie." However, the later episodes that feature the characters Laurence, Alice Avril, and Marlène are given the new series title: "Agatha Christie's Criminal Games." See more »
I watched a few episodes with Superintendent Larosière and the young Inspector Lampion, set in the Thirties , and some other episodes featuring Commissaire Swan Laurence and reporter AliceAvril in the Fifties. All of them bring a fresh approach to Agata Christie's stories, a touch of comedy and a glance at the society of the time, but let me say that the earlier episodes are far more intriguing than the later ones. My rating for this series would have been a 8 or even 9 for the Larosière and Lampion duo, but a 6 for Laurence and Avril. This series definitely makes a case for having per-season ratings for TV shows on IMDb.
