6-part French miniseries. While Marie Dompnier is convincing as detective Sandra Winckler, the production as a whole suffers from manufactured intrigue (Thierry Lhermitte, in particular, is enigmatic without purpose) and a relentlessly over-scored, washed-out moodiness. The wolf is pure MacGuffin, inconsistently pursued.
