“Baptiste ss 3”: release date, announcement
Despite the fact that even before the release of season 2 of the crime TV show “Baptiste” it was announced that the season would be final, viewers are not ready to say goodbye to their favorite characters. Fans of the TV series are hoping to see a sequel, but the producers, in turn, have not given any comment. The project is officially closed.
Going grocery shopping, helping his daughter, who recently became a mother – a former police officer is immersed in this. His wife Celia sees that retirement has affected her husband for the worse. So when Julien’s former colleague Martha offers to investigate, Celia asks her husband to help. Moreover, at home there is too much noise from him for a small child.
Finding no constructive excuse to stay with his family, Baptiste travels to Amsterdam. Here a young girl Natalie, who works in a local erotic service club, has recently disappeared. Her Uncle Edward is terribly upset. After the death of his brother, he raised the girl, and now she is missing. In search of consolation, he calls his ex-wife, but remains unheard.
After meeting, Julien and Edward begin to investigate together. And if Edward trusts people too much, then his partner easily sees lies in other people’s eyes. Their searches repeatedly lead them to a dead end, but Baptiste does not intend to retreat. Everyone is silent, although it is clear that they understand the obvious – the girl is most likely no longer alive, and the uncle can not expect that he will see her.
Stumbling upon new evidence, detectives hear different versions of what is happening from the people interviewed. Natalie recently could not overcome drug addiction and began to steal. Accidentally meeting an influential lady, the girl found salvation, but not for long. And a certain Romanian man Drago, whose name she called to Edward before her disappearance, wished her death.
Baptiste feels old. Chasing suspects is very exhausting, memory and hearing fail, and sometimes even vision. But he tries to pull himself together and goes to solve the case without pity for himself. Meanwhile, the Romanian bandits find out that someone is interested in a certain Drago. One of them is involved in the Natalie case, but no one wants to reveal their intentions. While one bandit is watching the actions of Julien, the other one, deciding to get to know the enemy better, tracks down the wife and grandson of Baptiste in the supermarket…
An interesting plot was given by the scriptwriters back in the first season, and now it remains only to find out how the main character will reveal a new crime.
