Gorgeous scenery could not make up for bad writing!
The gorgeous Icelandic scenery used as a stunning background for this series, could not compensate for the really bad writing, and storyline. The plot is difficult to follow, not because of the subtitles but because of poor writing. It's as if they did not use a storyboard to ensure sequencing and continuity. Characters appeared out of the blue but their connection to the main plot was never adequately explained. Half the time the viewer is left wondering what the role of these people is in the story. The final episode is just totally unbelievable, and one wonders at the decision-making skills of the Icelandic "Detectives". I'm sure this series is an embarrassment to the real police and detectives in that country! The ending is lame and inconclusive. This is not at the level of what expects from "Nordic Noir". It's just really bad!
