First up, I've watched the entire series, so I'm not reviewing something I've only half-seen. This is a great slow burn Scandi-drama that ratchets up the tension, occasionally explodes, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The plot centres around the intriguing premise of police facing a seemingly impossible-to-solve hostage situation. Good character development throughout, even for minor characters, that explore motivations and the frailties of the human condition. The cinematography is more akin to a big budget blockbuster than a TV series, looks really great. In some ways, this series reminds me of Spooks during the latter part of the Adam Carter era. Binge-watched in two sittings. Great stuff.
