Storyline

Paris, present days. Police faces with a psychopath whose murders are inspired by Jeanne Deber, known as « The Mantis », a famous serial killer who terrorised the country 20 years ago. Believing it takes one to know one, the Police asks Jeanne Deber to help hunt the copycat. Placed in solitary confinement since her arrest, "The Mantis" agrees at one condition : to deal only with detective Damien Carrot, who happens to be her son and who has broken ties with her mother a long time ago - Damien has no choice. A serial killer is on the loose and could strike anytime, anywhere in Paris. Written by AB International Distribution

Well done
27 June 2018 | by aphillips-43057See all my reviews

My wife and I really enjoyed this series. Yes, there were some flaws: a few stupid decisions by the police and a little overacting; but overall it was a great series with a complicated plot that in the end made sense. This is one of the better detective series we have found recently and I would definitely recommend it.
