1 May 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Rustic prime-time soap with family secrets that won't stay buried. An interesting watch just to see a Nordic take on the genre.

Some parts can be very slow moving — this series could easily been whittled down to 8 episodes. There are a lot of scenes without dialog that could be edited out — characters glancing up with worried looks, or forest pathway and beach walks with those same expressions of concern.

It's watchable, but the plot could use some tightening up. Not as memorable as many other Nordic series.
