Riveting and well-directed crime series in Spanish.
Well done and gripping crime show. I've only watched one episode so far, but it was very engrossing. Great way to practice your Spanish :)
Typical murder mystery, but has some surprises. Atmospheric and the acting is excellent. Dialogue and specific scenes are well directed and the actors are very talented. Soundtrack is appropriate and representative of current Spanish pop. I especially liked that the scenes are not all interiors. The camera takes us inside automobiles, out into the countryside and other locations. I'm not sure if the series was shot on location or in a studio or local area. Another plus is that it's not all those interrogation scenes that get to be a little tiresome in 'police procedurals.
