Les petits meurtres d'Agatha Christie ("Agatha Christie's little murders") is a French adaptation of Agatha Christie's stories as a period crime comedy-drama 90-minute series with two local sleuths instead of her detectives.

Commissaire Laurence (Samuel Labarthe), reporter Alice Avril (Blandine Bellavoir), and Laurence's secretary Marlène (Élodie Frenck) return this fall on pubcaster France 2 for three brand new episodes. 

It starts tonight with Meurtre à la kermesse. You can find a review of this excellent episode here:

Next week France 2 will air Cartes sur table, adapted from Agatha Christie's Cards on the Table and aired on Swiss television last may. A rather enjoyable episode but it probably would have worked better with Laurence and April's predecessors, Larosière and Lampion. Anne Canovas, Ged Marlon and the supremely talented Saïd Amadis are amongst the guest cast.
