SynopsisEdit

Anne Fortier (Lorain) is a criminal psychologist from Montréal, who works with the investigators of SAS (Anti-Sociopathic Service), a fictional police division specialising in crimes involving abnormal psychology. Although their sordid crimes including a shoe thief and a pyromaniac, most of the cases given a lot of time on the series are ruthless murders, often serial killings.

While solving these cases Fortier and her colleagues must wrestle with her own murky past and several psychological issues.
