SEASON 1 | SEASON 2
Five years after the death of his wife at the hands of the secret society ‘Salamander’, Chief Inspector Paul Gerardi is called to the case of the assassination of a Kitangian refugee in Brussels. Witnesses say the killer was a white man driving a black Mercedes who has been seriously injured after a police chase. Gerardi and his colleague Danny follow up leads provided by the victim’s political allies, and Paul visits the unconsious suspect in hospital where he makes an alarming discovery.
Gerardi is woken by a phone call from the hospital with news that the suspect Bernard Mercier is dead. Paul is convinced that his death cannot have been from natural causes and when the officer guarding the dead man is questioned, footage emerges of a woman who has impersonated a nurse to gain access to the suspect’s room.
As Gerardi searches Jacky Lanciers’ apartment, he realises that he has disturbed intruders. He and Danny give chase, but Danny is seriously injured when Paul crashes their car. Vic Adams is alerted that the police have visited Jacky’s apartment and arranges for the secret service to collect incriminating evidence.
Martine tells Antony, Chrissie and Alain that if the incriminating film of Bombe is still at Gerardi’s house, she has a plan to retrieve it. Paul is continuing his unofficial investigation into the Minnebach Investment Bank and on visiting the HQ of the Kitangi opposition, learns that Leon Tchite is being buried today in Brussels’ cemetery.
Rene helps Paul to locate a diamond merchant who may be able to identify the source of the diamond he retrieved from Jacky Lanciers’ safe. Martine’s plan of using her nephew to seduce Nicola Wolfs is appearing to be working as Nicola brings the young man to her home.
Paul breaks into Rudy Desmet’s house to question him about the Kitangi diamonds, where Rudy admits to making several necklaces from the illicit stones.
Paul is horrified to realise that he has been betrayed by Rene when his friend arrives to represent Jacky and warns her not to trust him. On following them back to Jacky’s flat, Jacky refuses to speak with him so he resorts to examining the ‘grey information’ that Monda has given him about Minnebach Bank.
Paul is in despair thinking that Sofie has been abducted, but she is blissfully unaware of his concerns as she arrives with Jamie at their French seaside hideout.
Sofie and Jamie arrange a rendezvous in Brussels for him to hand over the flash drive to her father. Their conversation is monitored by P9 whose mole leaks the information to the Minnebach organsiation.
Burton and his henchman get away with the incriminating flash drive as Vic Adams arrives to find the badly injured Paul. Adams admits to Paul that he has been frozen out of the P9 operation.
