Fortier is a French-language Canadian television series which debuted on TVA from February 3, 2000 and ended on April 1, 2004. A subtitled version later aired on the English-language CBC Television network, as part of its now-defunct late-night Best of French Canada anthology series.[1] It was made by Aetios Productions, and the show's creator Fabienne Larouche.


Anne Fortier (Lorain) is a criminal psychologist from Montreal, who works with the investigators of SAS (Anti-Sociopathic Service), a fictional police division specialising in crimes involving abnormal psychology. Although their sordid crimes include a shoe thief and a pyromaniac, most of the cases given a lot of time on the series are murders, often serial killings. While solving these cases Fortier and her colleagues must wrestle with her own murky past and several psychological issues.



Awards and recognition[edit]

  • The series earned Michèle-Barbara Pelletier a Prix Gémeaux for Best Supporting Actress - Series or Dramatic Program for her appearance in episode three in the second season. Four other Prix Gemeaux nominations were given in the category Best Supporting Actor - Series or Dramatic Program.
