Balthazar is one of France’s top 10 highest-rated dramas of 2018. Suave, smart, and unconventional, forensic pathologist Raphaël Balthazar (Tomer Sisley, Messiah, The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch) can make the dead speak like no one else to solve Paris’ most baffling crimes. But there’s one case that continues to haunt him—the murder of his wife over a decade ago. In the series premiere, Balthazar immediately clashes with no-nonsense chief inspector Hélène Bach (Hélène de Fougerolles, Le Secret d’Elise, VA Savoir,) as they work together to solve the double homicide of a public prosecutor and his wife, leaving behind their traumatized young daughter.
