Really good!
17 September 2016 | by CrisGrahamSee all my reviews

I really liked to watch the 3 seasons and I cant wait for the 4! There will be a season 4 right?

Great crime argument and amazing natural Shetland Isles as a prime character!! I often review some parts just to see all that beauty landscape.

To some it may be a little depressing, but I just find it real. Crime and investigation world is just like that. No time for a lot of joy and BBC Wallander, Shetland and so on show us that.

Douglas Henshall delivered an awesome performance as Jimmy Perez! It took me to find his previous work and he is now one of my top actors! Well done!
