5 shows to help you traverse the world of crime

gmail

Well, you’ve just finished Narcos season 3, and season 4 is nowhere near completion. What do you do? Re-watch the entire series again? Sounds fine, until you start speaking exactly like Peña and Escobar! We have a better idea: get your crime fix with more international shows and expand your world. Here are a few worthy replacements you can binge watch right now.
Take a wild ride through Turkey, with Behzat Ç.
You’ll find shades of Peña in Behzat Ç., a morally ambiguous police officer in Ankara, Turkey. Apart from being dark and gritty, the series is known to handle sensitive topics, often drawing the ire of the government – but that hasn’t stopped the showrunners from finding creative ways to avoid censorship.
Why watch?
The final episode of the first season is considered the best season finale of a Turkish TV series. Where? Netflix.

 

 

Behzat
Spend some time with the Italian mafia in Gomorrah

Gomorrah is a pioneer of sorts, like The Wire – in showing street-level crime and how it spreads to higher levels of society. It is a fictional adaptation of Roberto Saviano’s 2006 real-life book about the Camorra crime syndicate, and chronicles the transfer of power – and the struggle to get it – like never before.

Why watch?

The original mafia with Italian gangsters, more ruthless than any. The Cali Cartel seems like a high school gang in comparison.

Where?
Tata Sky World Series, Channel no. 202, and on the Tata Sky app.
 


 
Gomorrah

Let Cromo show you what eco-terrorism isOK, we’re cheating a bit with this one on the list – but Cromo is compelling television! This Argentine drama takes a unique view of eco-terrorism, and pits a group of scientists against sinister forces. It starts off as a murder mystery, but takes a turn for good – leaving us with only one option: binge watch.

Why watch?

The series was written under the watch of a group of investigators from Argentine government agency CONICET, and it is based on actual events.
Where? Hotstar.

Experience the Four seasons in Havana

This is the closest you can get to Narcos – a country washed over with crime, intriguing criminals, and equally interesting cops. The cinematography captures Cuba in all its sultry glory, the flawed protagonist Lieutenant Conde makes you love and hate him at the same time, and the story moves forward at breakneck speed, with a thrill a minute.

Why watch?

Jorge Perugorría’s excellent portrayal as a detective who would rather be a writer. Restrained, confusing, and applause worthy.
Where?
Tata Sky World Series, Channel no. 202, and on the Tata Sky app.
 

 
Havana
Follow a Danish cop as she unravels The Killing.

This is not for the faint-hearted. Granted, the entire series revolves around the murder of one person – but what that murder does to everyone involved, will rip your heart apart. Like Narcos was less about the smuggling and more about the people who ran the operations, The Killing is less about the murder and more about the investigation and emotions surrounding it.
Why watch?
The slow burn, and how all the seemingly loose strings tie themselves up beautifully in the end.
Where? Netflix.

These five shows are guaranteed to keep you glued to your screen as you go globetrotting on a carnival of crime. And don’t worry, we will come up with more recommendations by the time you finish these! If you don’t know which one to start with, head over to Tata Sky World Series on Channel No. 202, and get your binge on with Four Seasons in Havana.
