Based on motives by the global best-seller of the same name by Patrick Suskind, the Perfume series shifts the action to the modern day and uses the book's idea of manipulating people through scent as a springing-off point. A young profiler investigating a series of brutal murders traces events back to a small cadre of boys at a boarding school who experimented with manipulating people using human scents.
The start of the show is shocking to see the wounds made to the muder victim's body, but this is not your usual "who dun it " show. It takes a sinister turn when flashbacks reveal troubled youths, how they struggled with their past ,come together for the funeral and how police is quite quick to blame one person, but a determined detective knows all. I did not feel the need to make the detective have an affair with her boss in the storyline. The French language was a nice change too
