Wouter Hendrickx and Angeline Ball in Hidden Assets (RTE One)


Hidden Assets

Tonight, 9.30pm, RTE One

Starring the ever-charismatic Angeline Ball, this new drama series sees a revival of her character DS Emer Berry from 2017’s Acceptable Risk. This time round, Berry is working for the Criminal Assets Bureau where she uncovers links between a moneyed Irish family, a drugs for diamonds exchange and a series of bombings in Belgium. Working alongside no-nonsense Belgian inspector Christian De Jong (Wouter Hendrickx), she becomes drawn into the seemingly disparate worlds of limitless avarice and modern terrorism. Moving between Belgium and Ireland, the show has a sophisticated European edge that should appeal to fans of Nordic noir. JG
