Ha'alele ****
10 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With McGarrett off to Japan to do further investigation into the deaths of his parents, Max, the autopsy guy, gets a rare opportunity to have an episode built around him and he certainly makes the most of it.

When a woman is murdered on the road, this opens up the case of a serial killer known as the Trash Man. A guy is spending life in prison due to circumstantial evidence, and Max feels he is innocent. Danny and the crew look for a common denominator in all the killings. Seems that all of the dead women gave up their newly born illegitimate children to a church. The ending where the real murderer is revealed is shocking to say the least. It also turns out that Max's biological mother was one of the victims.

Max puts on a gut-wrenching performance which is highly effective.
