Great Series (of mini-movies)!!
9 October 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this is one of the best (Dutch) series of the last past years.

If you want to call it series anyways... There is not really a storyline that runs thru the whole series, and there are no characters that are in multiple episodes. The thing that connects the episodes, is that every one of them is based on a real life murders in the Netherlands. In the episodes you see the aspects that led to the murder, viewed from the perspective of the 'criminals'.

Every episode feels like a short film, many of them with great actors, scripts, and overall very high-quality feel. The thing that attracted me in this series, is that it often shows that killers are normal people too, most of the time driven over the edge by there surroundings. End the end of the episodes i often got the feeling that the person did the right thing by (intentionally, or not) kill other people.

It was a weird feeling, almost understanding the killers. But that only shows the power of good storytelling. And by doing such a great job at that with this series, it is really is the best dutch series in a long while.
