From the NY Times Critic’s Pick 12/1/22:

PARIS POLICE 1900 – NY Times Best Shows of 2022

A juicy and handsomely dressed addition to the history-as-police-thriller genre (“Babylon Berlin,” “The Alienist”), this new series from the French network Canal+ combines the sordid (the in flagrante death of the French president), the horrific (body parts in floating suitcases, part of a butchery motif) and the historically objectionable (violent public antisemitism stoked by the Dreyfus affair). Jérémie Laheurte plays a diffident but dogged young cop based on an actual turn-of-the-last-century Paris policeman.
