Detective sergeant Victor Lessard, a senior investigator with the SPVM’s major crimes division, accompanied by colourful team-mate Jacinthe Taillon and junior member Loïc Blouin-Dubois, investigates the death of a man and a woman found with their necks pierced by what appears to be an instrument of torture straight out of the Middle Ages. Just before death, the victims heard a voice, the voice of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President Kennedy...A homeless man with more than a few stays in the psychiatric ward jumps from the top of an office building in Old Montreal under the watchful eye of Nadja Fernandez, an investigator from Station 21. Before jumping to his death, he leaves the wallet of the first victim on the rooftop of the building...The series of ritualized murders continues, and the bodies pile up. Dark, shadowy stories that some would like to see buried, resurface...This 10-episode (1 hour each) police thriller deals with identity reconstruction, memory reconstitution, and a thirst for honour. The series is adapted from Martin Michaud’s bestselling novel Je me souviens, winner of numerous literary prizes and widely acknowledged as “the master of the Quebec thriller.”
