According to Télé Loisirs:
“A moving story. The duo formed by Lionnel Astier and Camille Aguilar deserves to last.” 3.5 / 5
According to Télé Z:
“Even if the whole is not always very credible, this plot, well served by its actors, pays a singular tribute to Claude Nougaro.” 3.5 / 5
According to Cable Sat TV:
“The script is nicely anchored in Toulouse culture as well as in the architecture of the city. Too bad some elements of the plot are agreed and predictable.” 2.5 / 5
According to Télérama:
“Like the previous versions of Meurtres à…, this Toulouse episode multiplies the postcard plans in order to anchor the intrigue in the Occitan capital. After this condensed of clichés a bit indigestible, the investigation led by the tandem Simon Keller-Cécile Gimet is still pretty entertaining. ” 2.5 / 5
