Molina’s appointment as Detective Gamache was announced in 2021, just before the show’s production got underway. It was observed that “the French-speaking detective investigates murders in his Quebec neighborhood” and that “speaking English with an English accent is one of his idiosyncrasies owing to his Cambridge schooling”

In the strange yet enchanting village of Three Pines, the plot features the kind and astute Chief Inspector Gamache as he tries to investigate a string of intriguing and perplexing murders.
