Department S Episode 10: The Treasure of the Costa del Sol

Department S_The Treasure of the Costa del Sol Title Shot

Off the coast of Spain lies a treasure, its in the most peculiar place and with a side of backstabbing. Two crooks lie dead on the coast and police are baffled. Something smells fishy. One of the men had a booklet with over 50 different women names in it, a perfect situation for Jason to investigate. This string of beautiful ladies lead to a trail of counterfeit currency which is nearly perfect to the naked eye. As Department S narrows its focus it becomes clear the complex form of trafficking this currency was put out in the market. It all comes to a climax and in the end someones fish is cooked.

Personal Synopsis

This episode is fun and good on the eyes. There are more beautiful women in this episode than any prior and none of them are painted in a bad light. Initially the complex nature of the crime seemed very fishy, pardon the pun, and would be considered sincerely outlandish. But this is television and the show was entertaining with an edge of suspense.
