Not bad, but a bit over-sophisticated script
5 January 2019 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Well, prison dramas are not novel, but they tend to focus on all "leading" prisoners in a rather equal manner, but here - it should be Linda´s story, but then other prisoner become involved more and more, at times overshadowing Linda and her issues. The origin of Linda´s deed can be alas guessed too soon as well.

The cast is strong and versatile though, with performers often seen in other Icelandic series, and the ending is catchy, but I have to say I liked e.g. Ófærð and Réttur more.
