Ellen Dorrit Petersen,
Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her. She returns to her job on the murder squad, investigating a case that seems disturbingly familiar to her.
Paris, present days. Police faces with a psychopath whose murders are inspired by Jeanne Deber, known as « The Mantis », a famous serial killer who terrorised the country 20 years ago. Believing it takes one to know one, the Police asks Jeanne Deber to help hunt the copycat. Placed in solitary confinement since her arrest, "The Mantis" agrees at one condition : to deal only with detective Damien Carrot, who happens to be her son and who has broken ties with her mother a long time ago - Damien has no choice. A serial killer is on the loose and could strike anytime, anywhere in Paris.Written by

I enjoyed watching this series and was really impressed with the quality of the acting, especially with Carole Bouquet, Fred Teston and Manon Azem. While the plot has some unrealistic elements, the relationship between the mother and son was portrayed with emotion and was compelling to watch.
I have seen many thrillers (The Fall, The Killing, The Disappearance), but have not seen this particular mother/son dynamic before. I ended up binge-watching this series, something that I don't normally do. For this reason, I am rating it as a 9.
I hope that there will be a second season.
