Murder, mystery

As you can see by the number of series below, it’s one of my favourite categories. Because of the suspense, the plots often smarts, the dialog often good, strong and complex characters. I have a preference for comedy, but dark series can be good too.

I recommend

My top four !

  • Brooklyn 99 / comedy / Netflix / The wacky life of a police station. Endearing characters, and a series smarter than it may seem…
  • Carnival row / fantastic, dark / Amazon / A top notch series, close to perfection : an inspector investigates the murder of a fairy, a despised creature.
  • Only murders in the building / comedy / Disney+ / Three neighbours who have nothing in common join forces to solve murders. Brillant !
  • Sherlock / Netflix / The famous detective, transposed in our time. Smart, and a excellent casting.
