When a fabulous necklace that once adorned the doomed queen, Marie Antoinette, and now belonging to the Pellegrini family goes missing, Babakar is suspected. Even without hard evidence, Babakar is put in prison where he hangs himself, and Assane is orphaned.

Twenty-five years later, the queen’s necklace comes up for auction at the Louvre and who should be in on the proceedings but none other than Assane. The necklace is stolen and the police are running in circles trying to find the thief who apparently spirited away the necklace under the highest security.

It is such a classic heist-movie device that could get repetitive or even predictable but luckily, Lupin with its unique mercifully short five-episode first season and its endlessly charming leading man, executes each reveals with a high degree of finesse.
