Liesa Van der Aa,
Two days before Christmas, Andrea is sent by Benthos Oil to investigate a fatal accident on the company's North Sea rig. Faced with silence and a raging storm that cut off communications, she and the crew soon realize a killer's on board.
During a snowy Christmas season in Sweden, psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik finds not only herself but also her autistic daughter drawn into the investigation of a number of disturbing deaths.
Victoria works as an engineer specializing in drones. She is taken hostage in the home of terrorists, while the security police in Sweden, led by SÄPO agent Eva, and the Danish colleagues at PET are trying to prevent an imminent terrorist attack. The destiny of the two women is intertwined in a gray zone where morality and responsibility are put at risk.Written by
Entertaining, but with some wishful thinking and plot holes
Global terrorism and mass killings in bigger Western cities have alas become annual reality, so topical films and series may excite additional interest, they are less "sci-fi" than decades ago. On the other hand, technology and surveillance skills have developed, so it is harder to create additional thrill or twists by using wow!-findings or ideas later - they seem fictitious, airy-fairy...
The latter is at times present in Greyzone as well, particularly for them who are eager viewers of (Scandinavian) crime dramas - like me. I am neither agent nor policeman, but methods used / using a scientist in such operations seem rather questionable. True, when setting this aside, the script goes on smoothly, the characters/performances (particularly Birgitte Hjort Sørensen and Tova Magnusson) are pleasant, and the inclusion of different nations/languages provides additional value. But still, having seen dozens of similar series, I find Gråzon far above average, but not conceptual, and viewers outside Northern Europe may find it even less valuable.
