Based on the bestselling novel GLACÉ (The Frozen Dead) by Bernard Minier

A horrific discovery in a small town nestled high in the French Pyrenees begins to unravel a dark mystery that has been hidden for years. On an unforgiving winter morning, a group of workers discover the headless body of a horse, hanging suspended from the edge of a frozen cliff. Commandant Martin Servaz starts investigating and soon discovers a dark story of madness and revenge.

Winner for Best Series at Festival de la Fiction TV de La Rochelle 2016.

I loved it. It’s clever, it’s a little macabre and it will keep you on your toes. It has a sprinkling of BROADCHURCH, TRAPPED, HANNIBAL and all the other fantastic European thriller TV shows. The budget is good, the script is as good and the only thing I didn’t love was the very very end, although it could be because of a pending second season in the works which would make much more sense.

On a side note I am obsessed with anything snow. I would have LOVED to have been living in the wonderful town it is set in. The scenery and cinematography is sublime and I can hardly fathom the logistics of filming in that environment.
