Witnesses Season 1 & 2 (DVD)
This French crime series may be inspired by Scandi/NordicNoir drama with it's strong female lead and the visual aesthetics, but this is rightfully in a league of its own.

Sandra Winckler (Marie Dompnier) is a young but determined and relentless detective. As the series opens, she takes charge of a case involving unrelated dead bodies being left inside model show homes. But a unexpected piece of evidence is place at one the crime scenes a photo of retired detective Paul Maisonneuve (Thierry Lhermitte) arousing the idea that he knows, or is known to the killer. The case forces him to come out of retirement and return to duty to help Winckler conduct her investigation. But does Maisonneuve know more about the crimes than he is letting on?
Fifteen frozen dead bodies are found at a bus stop and Sandra is assigned to lead the murder investigation. Suspiciously all victims are linked to a mysterious Catherine Keemer (Audrey Fleurot), giving Sandra hope that she holds the key to resolving this investigation. Sandra exhausts all efforts and finally tracks her down, only to learn that Catherine has lost her memory and therefore no recollection of anything that can link her to the murders or even help her piece it together. Can Sandra piece together the clues she does have and solve the case?
