If you appreciate British or Scandinavian mysteries, this may be for you
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As previously written, "The one thing I will say about The Broken Shore is . . . that it would have been good if it was made into a 6x1 hour mini series".

I agree totally.

This is a well paced, interesting movie which discloses much about Australian culture (which only an Australian could certify as true) set in a sometimes bleak but more often beautiful setting.

The pace reminded me of a Morse episode, but with a younger, excellent actor Don Hany.

The story appears to head toward a familiar ending. However, the ending is more satisfying than expected.

The movie begs for a sequel.
