What is Baptiste series two all about?

Baptiste tells the story of French private investigator Julien Baptiste, who specialises in looking for missing people.

He first appeared in series one and two of The Missing, and then his own spin-off series.

And in the first series of Baptiste, the investigator suffered heartbreak when his son was revealed to be a corrupt cop, who killed his own mother.

After the heartbreak and trauma he’s back for another case.

In series two, when British Ambassador Emma Chambers’ whole family disappears while on a skiing holiday in the Hungarian mountains, Baptiste immerses himself into Emma’s world, committed to finding her husband and two sons.

However, when the case takes a turn, Julien must navigate a Hungarian police force he doesn’t trust and the media who are also on the case.
