3 Must-See Detective European TV Series

Celebrating the premiere of the action Czech series, The Fury, about a police detective sent to the country’s borderlands to investigate a cold case as a punishment for his violent reactions, Eurochannel has selected three European action series nobody should miss!

The Missing

One of the most riveting series produced in the UK in recent years, The Missing is an anthology drama created for the BBC. The first eight-part series focuses on the search for a missing boy in France and starred Tchéky Karyo as Julien Baptiste, the French detective who leads the case, with James Nesbitt and Frances O'Connor as the boy's parents.

The second series follows detective Baptist investigating the case of a missing girl in Germany. In this latest case, the police tell Sam and Gemma Webster, whose daughter Alice went missing in 2003, that she has reappeared. Alice claims she had been held captive with Sophie Giroux, a French girl who disappeared during the same time. Retired French detective Julien Baptiste, who was in charge of the Giroux investigation, cannot resist becoming involved again and travels to Germany and Iraq to find answers.

Hinterland

One of the biggest TV productions in Welsh history, Hinterland is a detective drama filmed in two versions, one in Welsh and one in English. The series follows DCI Tom Mathias as he arrives in Aberystwyth after 10 years at the London Met. He is a brilliant but troubled man, solving crimes in a town full of secrets as dark and destructive as his own.

Hinterland consisted of three series (seasons) in which DCI Mathias and his team investigate puzzling cases of murders and disappearances. The series became the first ever production to air on BBC in both Welsh and English.

The Bridge

Created by Hans Rosenfeldt, this Scandinavian noir crime series in which a bi-national police team is put together to investigate a baffling case when the body of a woman is found in the middle of the Oresund Bridge between Sweden and Denmark.

The success of the series led to different adaptations across the globe, including a British-French version, The Tunnel (2013); an American remake, starring Diane Kruger; as well as Russian and Asian adaptations.
