Mon dieu! Our favourite daring Frenchman is back for more brilliant crime drama. The end of part one saw Assane Diop’s (Omar Sy) son, Raoul, go missing…go missing while on a family trip to the beach. Connected, we presume, to Assane’s jewellery heist at the Louvre seeking revenge for his father’s suicide, after he was accused of a crime he didn’t commit.
Part two picks up straight after Raoul’s kidnap as Assane tries to track down his son and continue to seek vengeance for the historic wrongdoings to his family.
