During a mission, he stumbles upon his best and most free-spirited student Camille Delaunay. From there, they start working together. Niémans and Camille are called out to all parts of France to solve complex cases which all involve a weird brutality far beyond the capacity of local police departments to respond. They are the emergency response team, but they are street cops, products of the city, experts in big-league crime. Familiarity with human evil is in their DNA. They are funny, alert, efficient, dangerous. And they will stop at nothing to nail the killer.
