Storyline

Major Crime is a metaphor for East and West, for the conscious and unconscious, for reconciliation and difference, for hope versus despair, as Malik struggles toward the sunlight while Crowley descends into the abyss. The tragedy, that the only thing that separated them was their own inability to know themselves is a universal human truth that transcends the difference between Muslim and non-Muslim Written by Kris Wyld

This edgy drama is an absolute must - do not miss it!
11 January 2008 | by akcowellSee all my reviews

I have just watched the final episode of this outstanding Australian police drama and about the only thing that surprises me is how few people seem to be even aware of its existence. Every episode is like a high class feature film. You simply will not see anything better from anywhere in the world. I don't really want to write 10 lines - I just want to implore you to watch it for yourself. Featuring some of Australia's finest actors and a very evocative musical score, it portrays a gritty picture of Australia's urban underbelly. The script is tight and twitchy and never a dull moment. Every aspect is simply superb. This edgy drama is an absolute must - do not miss it!
