Season 4

Since there was also a film adapted from Grange’s novel with the same name in 2000, they are always compared together. However, the 2000 version by Mathieu Kassovitz faced much more critics than the television series. Most fans believe that The 2018 TV series is a step up from its film version. There’s not just mystery but also inhumane murder scenes, which take this show very close to being a horror. 

It is to be noted that the series contains many graphic scenes, including nudity and murder scenes showing mutilated bodies. There are a lot of brutal fight scenes as well. There are also some close-up shots of murdered bodies which might be triggering for some.
