In a small Luxembourg village, apparently without history, Luc Capitani must investigate the disappearance and murder of two teenage girls. What is the detective series Capitani worth on Netflix?
Right now, thrillers are popular on the American platform! If we hope that My friend Adele will get a season 2 on Netflix, we know in advance that the continuation of the Luxembourgish series Capitani is already ordered by the streaming giant. This captivating detective series takes place in Manscheid, a small village in Luxembourg, apparently without history, in which everyone knows each other. There, we call each other by first name and we know every member of the area: the baker, the mayor, the headmaster, the priest, but also the idiot of the village. If nothing had happened for a long time in Manscheid, the tranquility of the town is disturbed when the body of a 15-year-old girl is found in the middle of the forest. Her name is Jenny and her sister Tanja is missing. Inspector Luc Capitani (Luc Schiltz) is then assigned to the case but he will come up against villagers full of secrets, not really cooperative. So the series Capitani sure Netflix is it worth a look? Here is our verdict.

If you like police investigations such as Safe or Intimidation adapted from the Harlan Coben books by Netflix, you should enjoy Capitani. The series consisting of 12 episodes offers us all the suspense and mystery that we are looking for in this type of program. Of course, we will appreciate the fact that the investigation reveals new potential suspects over the episodes, without giving us any clues from the start. Capitani takes advantage of a breathtaking scenario, in addition to making us discover one of the forests of Luxembourg in which many things seem to have happened the night Jenny died. What we appreciate even more is that everyone can be suspect: the cop who accompanies Luc, his military spouse, one of the members of the army with dubious liabilities, the baker’s daughter, unless the father of the victim is also involved?
Without wanting to spoil you, the ending is worth watching Capitani until the end, especially since a new investigation concerning one of the main characters is about to begin. What to imagine that season 2 of the show will mainly focus on this story, while some clues on the investigation have already been given in the first part. Capitani is a very good detective series, with no major missteps, and the actors are convincing in their roles.
