A masterpiece
26 October 2018 | by terry-stamatisSee all my reviews

Impeccably directed and produced, a marvelous script delivering an open wound of a story. Well researched and intelligently constructed, it provides a realistic look into modern police procedure and the struggle of survival by those living in today's margins. Hair-raising plot twists that mess with your emotions and loyalties, forcing you to keep adjusting which hero or anti-hero you're rooting for. Nobody is better than the Brits when it comes to these shows (nobody, not even the French) and Informer has just set a new bar in the genre. Not to be missed.
