This Monday 19, AXN will premiere this agile fiction about a policewoman, mother of four children, who makes her clumsiness and sharp eyes her best weapons.
Tagged on various impersonal portals as “Drama series”, Candice Renoir has all the numbers to earn the label of comedy in a police code. That is very clear after having seen, complete, the first three seasons. Perhaps in the exclusive dilemma of comedy The dramaIt must have been difficult for more than one to put it solely as a funny story, because in the plot there is always a criminal, a death, a murderer.

Therein lies the grace of this production premiered by France 2 seven years ago, which leaves her in off side with phrases out of date, like a half-old-fashioned boss. But Candice manages to impose her shrewd eyes and her cunning to untie cases. Surprising. And from there, and as the chapters go by, you will see how he begins to gain the trust of his teammates, always clinging to her nice clumsiness and a certain bizarre touch of its aesthetics.
