You can always rely on Walter Presents to dish out the good Euro stuff.

Next in line for the brand – broadcast in the UK via Channel 4 and its streaming site, All4, is a Polish crime series.

The Teacher (Belfer in its original language) tells the story of Pawel, school teacher, who arrives at his new school the day before the dead body of a teenage girl is found in the woods. When the original verdict of suicide is ruled out, Pawel is determined to uncover the truth whilst trying to hide his own secrets…

 Just before the start of a new school year, three boys venture into the woods and discover the dead body of their classmate, Joanna. The police suspect suicide but the autopsy later reveals she was brutally murdered and eyes immediately settle on the jealous boyfriend. Secretly knowing that Joanna is his daughter, teacher Pawel decides to move to town and set up life at the school she attended. Heartbroken and determined, he begins his own unofficial investigation which in turn lifts the lid on a disturbing trail of political and business corruption in the town. But as he gets closer to revealing the truth, he too becomes the subject of a manhunt…

 The Teacher broke records in Poland, becoming the all-time most viewed series on Canal+ as well as winning Best Fictional Series at the Polish Film Awards.

It starts from 2nd August.
