“France’s answer to The Wire” – The Telegraph
“Braquo is a treacly French Noir with a razor sharp set-up” – Metro
As the French crime thriller returns with a brand new season to FOX UK on Monday 8th November, you can catch up with every 24 hard-hitting episodes of Braquo to add to your Euro Noir experience. Hailed by the Radio Times as a “tense, hard-edged blood brother of Spiral and The Shield” with top ratings from French viewers, Braquo is a pulsating show that shouldn’t be missed.
We are immediately launched into a precinct governed by a spinning moral compass. Jean Hugues-Anglade (Suburra and Betty Blue) stars as Captain Eddy Caplan; in charge of patrolling the streets of Paris with a tough stance on law enforcement. When Caplan’s squad leader is placed under investigation for corruption, his team seeks justice by any brutal means necessary.
To atone for their anarchist approach, blurring the lines, and bending the rules so far to the extreme that they mirrored the very criminals they disdain, Caplan and his men have to adapt to their new positions under scrutiny. However, when four armed men kill 12 victims in the middle of a gold heist, the team is thrown back into action to stop the perpetrators embarking on their own brand of vengeance.
The seemingly invincible Caplan doesn’t stay down for long. In the third season, Caplan is the target to be discredited and taken out once and for all. At the same time, we are embroiled in a brand new case as a prostitution ring threatens to unleash a war with Soviet extremists from Georgia in the Parisian streets. How will Caplan quash the opposing Mafia factions from taking over the criminal underworld? There will be a lot of blood spilled before the finale.
