The second season began with the bizarre discovery of 15 male bodies, frozen to death on a bus in northern France. Lieutenant Sandra Winckler (Marie Dompnier) is put in charge of the elaborate crime, with only one lead that connects the victims: Catherine Keemer (played by Spiral’s Audrey Fleurot). Having been missing for three years, Catherine is eventually tracked down; however, her acute amnesia rouses suspicion. The only memory Catherine can’t forget is the birth of her child, who vanished without a trace.
Is this the key to solving the murder and finding the killer before it’s too late? While balancing life as a cop and a single mother, Sandra must rely on Catherine’s help to remember her past and unearth the truth before it’s too late.
So far, the second season has received glowing reviews as follows:
“Intriguing” – The iPaper
“Hooky” – The Herald
“Multiple murders most sadistic in absorbing French thriller” – The Arts Desk
Further praise from The List describes the show’s slow-burning signature: “Witnesses is nicely paced with judiciously timed reveals and cliffhangers. Dompnier is a decent lead as the determined detective struggling with the pressures of being a single parent, but the case is the star here.” The anticipation of the series reprise has captured fans and critics alike: “Explaining away a crime as bizarre and grandiose as this can lead to a convoluted conclusion that stretches the realm of credibility.” Nevertheless, the momentum is keeping us guessing. “Three episodes in, we’re still hooked and hope the finale can match the brilliant, macabre beginning.
Witnesses – A Frozen Death is considered a standalone series, featuring a fresh and chilling mystery for those who were thrilled by the compelling first season.
