Absolutely loved it!
30 November 2018 | by Anne_DBSee all my reviews

One of my favorite Scandinavian series, watched it twice to make sure I got all the plot twists. Beautiful scenery and the acting is great. There are no good or bad characters in this show, everyone has something to hide which makes it very intriguing. I don't want to give away any spoilers, just watch it! I'm hoping for a 2nd season...
