The Disappearance (Disparu)
Nordic Noir moves south and pitches up in Lyon. Léa is a popular girl who celebrates turning 17 by getting her first tattoo and attending an outdoor gig. Then she disappears, leaving her family in ruins and the police in puzzlement. It is quickly revealed that she has secrets (cocaine and motor racing) and that the tattoo isn't even real. Oh, and everyone else in the family also has secrets. Three episodes in, we already have a deeply tangled web.
This is gripping but it is very generic. Indeed, you wouldn't even guess this was a French show if it wasn't for the language, so tightly does it replicate the Scandi model in both looks and mood. Comparisons with The Killing are inevitable, to the extent that the dream sequence that opens episode two even seems to be a direct homage to the chase that starts the Danish masterpiece. I'm hooked, but I hope it develops more of a character of its own as it develops over the remaining five episodes.
