Spiral Saturday, BBC4, 9pm The joy of reading subtitled dramas clearly gives some viewers a buzz as they have to commit to every minute of the saga.
And that's one of the reasons this Gallic series has become such a cult hit in Blighty over the years. (Given the fact most other dramas on a Saturday night aim at the lowest common denominator, it's not hard for pseudo intellectuals to get hooked).
As series five continues, the double murder investigation points Laure's unit in the direction of a group of bank raiders.
Laure doesn't believe Jaulin is connected, but Roban stresses that the dad has failed to reveal the whole truth.
The cast includes Caroline Proust, Gregory Fitoussi, Philippe Duclos and Audrey Fleurot.
If this leaves you hungry for more slick Euro drama, don't miss BBC Four's screening of Jo Nesbo's Headhunters later in the week. It's a Norwegian cracker that will leave you reeling.
