Soon, Gerardi finds himself pursued both by criminals and the authorities and must learn the truth about the sinister organisation Salamander.

Sue Deeks, Head of Programme Acquisition BBC, said: "Salamander is a gripping, edge-of-the seat thriller - it will make a fantastic addition to our Saturday nights on BBC Four."

The acquisition follows the success of other international drama series in the Saturday night slot for BBC Four, including the likes of The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge.

"Salamander is an excellent example for top-of-the-line serialised storytelling made in Europe," said Oliver N Bachert, SVP International Sales and Acquisitions. "We are absolutely convinced that Salamander will thrill audiences in the UK the same way as it did on the continent."

The series debuted in its native Belgium in December 2012.
