Based on motives by the global best-seller of the same name by Patrick Suskind, the Perfume series shifts the action to the modern day and uses the book's idea of manipulating people through scent as a springing-off point. A young profiler investigating a series of brutal murders traces events back to a small cadre of boys at a boarding school who experimented with manipulating people using human scents.
Wow - this is an unusual piece of television. It is very dark, full of sexualised behaviours which are quite unhealthy. Its almost like a Freudian guide of murder. This dark and convoluted tale should hold you inits grip. It is a piece of art. The acting is superb and for once the actors chosen to represent the adult characters actually resemble them which strengthens the impact of the story line. Most of these characters are pretty awful individuals and the epitome of dysfunction. The cinematography is well done and the dismal winter surroundings bring an added feeling of doom that enhances the story line. This is seriously worth a watch. It is not for those who like fast police shows with lots of action and poor or predictable story-lines, you will need to engage your grey matter with this but it is worth every second.
