Episode(s):
Series: 10 x 50min

Bruno Testori is the director of San Michele prison, ruthless or merciful at will, like an absolute monarch. But a double murder risks jeopardizing his reign, unleashing a threat to the Western World.

Not recommanded for children under 12.

Our take

In the grand tradition of TV prison dramas, The King shows a meticulously organized microcosm where, despite all efforts, survival of the fittest prevails over justice. Luca Zingaretti, known for his role as the likeable Inspector Montalbano, plays against type and weaponises his star persona to terrifying effect.
