Named best prime time mini-series at the 2009 Fiction Festival of La Rochelle, Who Killed Little Red Riding Hood? is an intriguing and tense murder mystery. On the outskirts of a small, sleepy town, a pretty young girl is found dying in a ditch by the roadside. Beside her lies the dead body of her friend Paul – their faces have been covered with masks: a wolf for Paul, Little Red Riding Hood for Virginie. At first the police think they are the victims of a dramatic hit-and-run road accident. Paul died instantly, Virginie is in a coma. However, it soon becomes apparent that Virginie was raped while Paul was murdered in cold blood. The locals are all anxious to protect their own little secrets. It is the sort of place where everyone knows everyone, yet there is a murderer in their midst.
