L'art du crime

A detective and an art historian once again team up to investigate crimes linked to the world of art, think the Da Vinci Code as a two-part series. This witty French crime show offers a fresh take on the genre, coupled with great shots of Paris.


Antoine Verlay, an intuitive and headstrong police officer, and the renowned art historian Florence Chassagne, have become totally dependent on one another... for solving crime. A touch of romance along with crimes to investigate, all within the world of art, all keep us coming back for the next season!

With Nicolas Gob (Antoine Verlay), Éléonore Bernheim (Florence Chassagne), Philippe Duclos (Pierre Chassagne)

If you think a crime show set in Paris won’t make you fall even more head over heels in love with the city of lights, then think again. This show intertwines two of French people’s favorite hobbies: murder mystery and art. Each episode is linked somehow to art, whether it’s a crime at the Louvre, or one inspired by an Edgar Degas painting that holds all the secrets, or mysterious hieroglyphs on an Osiris statue which could explain a murder.

The show, with its rhythm and witty dialogue, is occasionally reminiscent of Columbo. But what really sets L’art du crime apart is the beautiful cinematography, whether it’s in the streets of Paris, in the Louvre or Moulin Rouge, or in 15th century castles. Already in its 4th season, the French crime TV series L’art du crime is one of the highest rated shows in France at the moment so jump on the bandwagon before it becomes the new Call My Agent! (10 pour cent).
