Astrid: Murder In Paris transmission date revealed by Walter Presents

Stand by for a new French series – Astrid: Murder In Paris – which became a huge hit in its native France and introduced viewers to an intriguing investigative partnership.

When Commander Raphaëlle Coste (Lola Dewaere) visits the police records bureau in search of information for one of her enquiries, she has no idea that she is about to have a life-changing encounter.

The brilliant young Astrid is autistic and a living encyclopaedia of criminal investigations. She has Asperger’s, which makes her very original and rather finicky in some situations. The Commander is investigating a bizarre suicide involving a Colonel who burnt himself alive: the complexities of which require a divergent approach to analysing the evidence which may point to the wrong conclusion. When Astrid gives Raphaëlle a helping hand, the two realize that their perfectly complementary skills are the key to solving cases despite, or even because of, their differences.

Astrid: Murder In Paris: Friday 21st October, 9pm, More4

  1. Hasn’t season one already played on Walter (PBS Masterpiece) in the U.S.? We were expecting season two.

    I love this series. So clever and original. The main characters are all fantastic but I really can’t help loving Astrid just a little more than the rest. I hope Astrid’s self help group are given more air time because they are all great characters in their own right😊

    I love this new French/English subtitled series shown on More4. Watched 3 episodes in one Saturday evening viewing. Already loving all the characters but the actress who plays Astrid is really so watchable and very convincing. Hope we eventually get to watch Seasons 2 and 3

    This series is really growing for me. It is so beautiful to watch the “awakening” of Astrid to a different life around her. Also, the plots are a bit out of the normal. And, the different puzzles she “plays” with are fascinating. So original all around. I hope we see Series 2 as well.
