Compulsive with (mostly) excellent acting
15 May 2017 | by sandhan-52072See all my reviews

I love Nordic Noir and this is one of the best of the recent slew... while many plots are a wee bit too predictable, this one, (while hardly keeping you 100% in the dark until the final denouement) certainly has plenty of twists and turns ~ Enough to keep me hooked anyway!

Acting and casting above average (although the mournful Liv was a bit of a sap IMHO).

Well worth the watch!
