What the press thinks …

According to Le Figaro:

“David Morley films a modern, sophisticated and icy City of Light. (…) This visual ease counterbalances hasty resolutions and sometimes flat dialogues.

According to Télé 7 jours:

“Christopher Bayemi makes his character believable. He makes you want to rush through the following episodes to know the rest. After HPI, this new detective series could well be the other pleasant surprise of this month of May.” 3.5 / 5

According to Télé Loisirs:

“This French adaptation turns out to be quite convincing thanks to a compelling plot, an energetic production, and a very nice cast.” 3.5 / 5

According to Cable Sat TV:

“Christopher Bayemi is convincing in Luther, even if he does not manage to forget his British counterpart Idris Elba. It must be said that the series does not restore the same tension either.” 3/5

According to Télé Z:

“Visually neat, interpreted without dishonor and endowed with significant resources, the series is far from unworthy. It is nevertheless difficult to grasp the merits of this rereading.” 3/5

According to Le Parisien:

“The interactions between the protagonists lack subtlety, which makes this fiction sluggish even when one does not know the British ‘Luther’.” 2.5 / 5
