Regularly shown on French TV, this is standard "crime" fair in the form of a TV series. Most of the actors are quite ordinary however Pierre Mondy who plays the father and who has in past film often played police roles carries it off very well as the police commissioner.

It cannot be compared to Maigret or Sherlock HOlmes, nor even Agatha Christie as the plots are not as convoluted and intricate. Nevertheless, if you are in the right mood ...... you may derive pleasure from some of the episodes !
