This was presented in the US on Public Television's "Mystery" in three parts, which I taped and watched in one sitting. Amanda Burton is outstanding in a role which is slow to develop but full of passion. Overall, a great sense of drama and betrayal, filled with characters of no great physical beauty but considerable dimension. I did have some problems with the accents and dialog, although I generally have less difficulty with this than most Americans. While I thought I had sussed out the mystery, I found myself second guessing and the ending is a stunner. Certainly more demanding than most of the "Mystery" offerings, and maybe for a certain palate. Oh, and the lead detective is certainly unique.
