Storyline

On what is supposed to be her last day at work, detective Sarah Linden is called to the scene of a violent crime after a blood-covered woman's sweater is found in a park. There is no body however. The police have also found an ATM card in the name of Stan Larsen. Sarah and her replacement, Stephen Holder, follow-up and when they learn that the Larsen's 17 year-old daughter Rosie did not spend the weekend at a friend's house and has not been seen since Friday night, they suspect the worst. While Rosie's parents Mitch and Stan try to locate her on their own, the police concentrate on searching the park where they eventually discover a car at the bottom of a small lake with the body of a young woman in the trunk. They also learn that the car is registered to the election campaign of city councilman Darren Richmond who is running for mayor. Written by garykmcd

Interesting?
12 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Loved the start.Great acting by Mireille Enos. However, Joel Kinnaman is simply appalling! Why are detective characters written this way. This guy stands over people, invades their space and probes directly. Intelligent people are almost always aware of themselves. Surely, you have to be intelligent to be a detective. He's direct and blunt. He appears to be on cocaine or speed. Information is obtained by watching and listening. He puts people on their guard because of his abrasiveness. Really hope his character settles down, if I am to continue watching. You will rarely find a wise person who's abrasive, abrupt, terse and socially inept. They acquire their intelligence through shrewd study and introspection. This is a society that seems to equate money with intelligence. Money is acquired through ruthlessness or discipline. Intelligence helps with being manipulative but that could simply be mistaken for intelligence and maybe only cunning and greed focus.
