Amazon has released the teaser trailer for Three Pines , a Canadian series based on the mysteries of Louise Penny , starring Inspector Armand Gamache .

This season is taken from the first book, Natura morta , published in Italy by Einaudi .

Alfred Molina plays Gamache , chief inspector of the Sûreté du Québec, called to investigate the death of a retired teacher in the eponymous village, south of Montréal.

The woman, Jane Neal , was found slumped in one of the forests surrounding the village, and many believe it was a hunting accident. Gamache , however, senses that something sinister is hiding behind the country’s idyllic climate.

Three Pines is expected to be released in December on Prime Video , but a specific date is not yet available. The head writer is Emilia di Girolamo , best known for EastEnders, Law & Order UK and The Tunnel .
