As we all know, BBC4 has become the de facto place to get all your foreign-language crime drama nourishment. Over the years the channel has broadcast such dark delights as The Killing, The Bridge, Wallander, Inspector Montalbano, Salamander et al. Another channel hit is gritty French crime drama, Spiral (or Engrenages in its native tongue). The good news is that the series is back fro a new season and it’s just around the corner. Details after the jump. Or Le Saut, if you will.
Before we get to the nitty gritty, here’s a short trailer. It’s in French but it’ll give you a bit of a flavour:
The fifth season of Spiral will start on Saturday 10th January, 9pm on BBC4.
