This series (shown as a 2-part series in NZ) was brilliant! The acting is performed well, but more than that, the story and the way in which it's told is fantastic.
Only minor bits of information, via each character's flashbacks, are revealed to the viewer throughout part one. We see how the guilt and the painful memory of the murder of their best friend/girlfriend/lover has affected their lives ten years later, and the panic and fear they feel when the case is reopened.
It's a well-thought-out adaption from a novel, and the performance delivered by each actor is brilliant. This is a wonderful story, dark and sinister as it may be, which kept me curious and alert to the end.
