THREE PINES is solving a brand-new murder involving a statute and a will. It is concluded within these two episodes. There is no dilly-dallying when it comes to Inspector Gamache (Alfred Molina).

I enjoyed the “faster” pacing, although there is always time for quiet musings with the Inspector’s team. “It takes only one second to lose control, and what powers it is usually grief or guilt.” Inspector Gamache is still deep within his visions and night terrors. I am intrigued to see where they will lead him in uncovering the puzzle surrounding missing Indigenous women from Quebec and its surrounding areas. I am glad it is now spring, and viewers can take in the beauty of the cinematography.

THREE PINES is not for everyone. First, you have to love trying to solve these murder- mysteries before the Inspector does. Second, you must enjoy the gentle “see-saw” rhythm of the investigation and interrogations. And third, you should use every patient bone in your body when celebrating those brief moments between homicides. I can check off all these quirky notes. I will be watching the final two episodes next Friday. 

THREE PINES is available to stream on AMAZON VIDEO.
