Dans Paris, Christmas Day 1965, Moi in the center.

Vive La France

So I have absolutely no basis for the emotion I experienced, first time I saw Paris. I felt like I finally was coming home.

In this dark December of pandemic fear, the moveable feast comes home to me in this lushly filmed, evocative TV series. Each “Murder in…” episode is nuanced, honoring all tenets of good detective fiction. Cynical medical examiners. Menacing, or appealing, suspects. Cop-humor and byplay familiar to me from a career in and around law-enforcement. All against gorgeous scenery.
