Storyline

In El Hierro, the most remote island of the Canary Archipelago, a murder has occurred. Candela, an experienced judge with a strong character, must instruct the case as she takes up her position in a destination where she doesn't fit in. The island, an abrupt and changing landscape, is the home of a small community with singular traditions, where nobody enters or leaves unnoticed and where secrets are hard to keep. The murderer is surely one of the islanders. Everybody believes it is Diaz, a shady local businessman, who seems to fit the bill. But nothing is that easy, neither with Candela, nor with Diaz. They are both out to find the murderer. She is out to do her job to the best of her ability; he is out to prove his innocence.

Good spanish tv show
4 July 2019 | by enrique131See all my reviews

I wasn't entirely sure about "hierro" but i decided to give it a go as i know one of the actors in it. But i am hooked up and i have watched 4 episodes so far. It reminds me of "Broadchurch" a little bit, i guess there are plenty shows like this, but being in a small canary island it was something that caught my eye too. I can wait to see how it ends.
