BALTHAZAR: French Crime Drama on Acorn TV

BALTHAZAR introduces America to the suave, smart and somewhat strange, forensic pathologist (Raphaël Balthazar) who has the knack of making the dead speak like no one else to solve Paris’ most disturbing crimes. There’s one case that continues to haunt him - the murder of his wife over a decade ago. Popular actor/director/comic Tomer Sisley (Messiah, We’re the Millers, Largo Winch) has been called “flawless” and “brilliant” by French media for his performance in the star role of this alluring series. Sisley is evenly matched with Hélène de Fougerolles (Le Secret d’Elise), who plays the no-nonsense police commander collaborating with him during these investigations.

Acorn TV will stream BALTHAZAR Series 1 on Monday, November 25,  and they’ve already picked up Series 2 scheduled to premiere in spring 2020.

We saw all 6 episodes in 2 days. Absolutely one of the best we have seen on Acorn TV. Looking forward to season 2 in 2020. Thank you for making BALTHAZAR available.!

Such a terrific show - I just finished the 6th episode and can't wait for Series 2 in 2020. Great lead actor and actress, plus great storylines. I hardly noticed that it was in French and had subtitles. I may be learning a little French as a result!
