Criminal, filmed in four languages across four different countries, is one the streaming service's most ambitious projects to date.

Described as a "stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama" which "focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects," the entire series takes place within the confines of a police interview suite, you know, to really ramp up that claustrophobia.

The 12-part series is comprised of 12 unique stories that are set in four different countries: France, Spain, Germany and the UK.

There will be three episodes set in each country (and spoken in local language), but all fall under the same series, and will be subtitled, so you can enjoy them all. Geddit?
