The body of 19 year old Driss Assani, a footballer with Heiderfeld football club is pulled out of the river Semois, a stones throw from Heiderfeld, a small town of a few thousand inhabitants in the Belgian Ardennes. The investigation is led by Inspector Yoann Peeters, who has recently moved there after a domestic tragedy, accompanied by Sebastian Drummer, an idealistic and inexperienced young police officer. Peeters will find himself confronted with a real conundrum, where one person's guilt does not mean that others are not responsible.Written by

Gripping and dark
I enjoyed the series thoroughly, completeing it within a few days. I loved all the dark forest shots, some of the creepy dreams, the somewhat satisfying twists where justice is served. Lots of good characters and good plotlines, but Peeters gets to be exhausting and it doesn't feel like the people who are supposed to keep him in check but don't ever get checked for it. I loved Driss' character. I loved how fully fleshed out he was, how present in each episode rather than becoming the dead black guy. The very final twist is my only disappointment - didn't make sense, served too abruptly...
