Above decent murder mystery series
7 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't think it is the best ever murder mystery series I have seen, this is coming from someone who loves Inspector Morse, A Touch of Frost and Agatha Christie: Poirot. While not as good as the above titles, Murder City was interesting and actually above decent. There may be some draggy parts once in a while and in my opinion, this series should have lasted longer, but the story lines were suspenseful and gripping, and the writing was excellent. The series visually is very stylish, and the music is good. And I for one liked the acting, Amanda Donahoe is wonderful as always and Kris Marshall is delightful in his well-written role. I also really enjoyed the chemistry between the two. Overall, a very well done if short lived series. 9/10 Bethany Cox
