Had this been a book I would have jumped to the last chapter after reading a few
A very disappointing TV show - very long when you are bored so much of the time (10 - 1 hour episodes), although the 3 main leads (Mikkelsen, Gerat and Baetens) do a good job and offers an interesting mix of personalities, secrets and approach to solving the mysteries - almost the ENTIRE rest of the roles are shockingly poorly acted. I don't even understand Dutch or German, but the poor acting was so obvious - at times embarrassing.... Have there been too many cooks on this show - where language and culture has caused problems to pick the right people? The narrative style seems to want to copy Broen (The Bridge) - but with a bit more show-of camera angels and framing which only makes it look worse. Had this been a book, after reading 3 chapters I would have turned to the last chapter - to find out who was responsible, and to avoid the waste of time on the other chapters. Harsh critique, but there are so many other good crime shows out there - this one you might as well skip.
