So desappointing
24 September 2018 | by olivierbonvalotSee all my reviews

I love Scandinavian crime series but for this one the scenario and the photography are so poor. Actors are doing what they can with what they were given... I stopped after 4th episode. I wasn't caring about the way it was going to end. A shame for a crime series !
