Astrid Nielsen is a main character in the French police series Astrid et Raphaëlle (Astrid and Raphaëlle).


Early life

She was late to learn to talk, and a child psychiatrist deemed that she'd never be able to live independently and suggested to her father she be institutionalised. He pushed back against this because she was making a lot of progress at home that the psychiatrist didn't see. Her father was a police officer, and she developed an interest in forensic science after accidentally stumbling upon one of his files. Her interest proved a great opportunity to get her to open up and further develop her speech.

Season 1

Astrid works as a documentalist for the French judicial police. She gets drawn into an investigation with the volatile police commander Raphaëlle Coste.


Astrid is a 30-year-old woman. She has blond hair with bangs that she usually keeps tied up. She tends always wear the same kind of rather formal clothes, such as a blue sweater on top of a shirt.


Astrid is stated to be autistic by Alain Gaillard in the first episode. On the official website, she is also described as "autiste Asperger"[2] (lit. "autistic Asperger's", a common French phrase for Asperger's syndrome).
