Inspector Tyador Borlú of the Extreme Crime Squad in the European city-state of Beszel, investigates the murder of a student from Beszel's twin-city of Ul Qoman - which occupies the same space but is perceived differently.
There is so much happening in this small peek that we see for this family. There are some truly terrible decisions that are made by both parents, even though they perceived it as beneficial to the family. It is interesting seeing the perspective from each (his in the first episode, hers in the second) before it is combined a little more truthfully in the third. Honestly, I was caught off guard by some of the truths that came out, and was holding my breath to find out how it played out. It wasn't always easy to watch, life often isn't, but man was it realistic.
This was well written and compelling. I wanted to know more and how both main characters got to were they where. That said, the acting was phenomenal. There was a strong cast from the children who were wonderful to the main cast. Christopher Eccleston, Paula Malcomson, and Kerri Quinn took turns breaking my heart and making me angry, to giving me faith back in people. I realize that the topic of accents is an issue for many native Irish speakers, but as a non-Irish person the accents did not distract me.
Overall, I highly recommend this series. It's not light but it is satisfying.
