Create a Hero only to Destroy him
12 September 2020 | by pensmanSee all my reviews

As others have pointed out, this season has two parts. Part one, (1-5), find an American serial killer who has eluded the FBI for twenty years. Part two (6-10), find out who is trying to destroy William Wisting and why. Both parts emphasize the problems Wisting has with his children and with Line in particular. In part one, Wisting and his journalist daughter Line are running parallel investigations unaware of each other's pursuit. Obviously, it is safe to assume the investigations will collide to build suspense for a satisfying conclusion. But before the congratulatory ink is dry, Wisting finds himself suspended and jailed for falsifying evidence. But a similar abduction occurs but Wisting has been sidelined. Will Wisting's daughter rescue her father and save rhe day? Both parts of season one are well done, but you wlll be frustrated by various characters and some police work that seems beyond incompetent.

I enjoyed the opening camera work that established the bleakness and isolation of Norway. And unfortunately I found the character of Line unbearable, and found myself hoping a killer would just take her out. That means the acting all around was terrific. An excellent cast of talented actors.
