The death of a childhood friend prompts Rebecka to leaves her fast-track career behind and return to her home town in Kiruna where she is drawn into the hunt for the killer. Despite the life awaiting her in Stockholm, she can't tear herself away from the place she once abandoned, as she is forced to deal with the traumatic past that once caused her to flee. Soon the question is: where does Rebekah really belong?

Supporting Characters Are The True Stars In This Drama
7 March 2018 | by wentworthstreetSee all my reviews

Overall, I enjoyed this addition to the Scandi Noir TV cannon. The character of Rebecka Martinsson has so much promise. Sadly, this promise did not seem to be fully embraced by Ida Engvoll. Of course, this may be because Ida Engvoll chose to deliberately hold back her portrayal of Rebecka in order to reveal more about her character in a potential second series. Nevertheless, I would have liked to have seen at least hints of a more rounded Rebecka in the first series.

The true strength in this Scandinavian drama, apart from the lovely scenery, lies with the supporting characters. In particular, the very capable and very human police officer Anna Maria Mella, Rebecka's potential love interest and police dog handler Krister Eriksson and her kindly elderly male neighbour Sivving Fjallborg.

I do hope there will be a second series. The first certainly created enough interest in the characters to care about how they develop.
