Former drugs queen Carmen is in hiding in Canada and is leading an anonymous life out there. By pretending she's dead, she hopes her children can lead a normal life back in Amsterdam. She keeps her nose clean until one evening, a colleague is attacked and Carmen has no choice but to come to her rescue. Out of self-defence, she kills the perpetrator, is arrested and extradited to the Netherlands. While her children are in shock that their mother is still alive, there are also quite some people who still have some unfinished business with Carmen. Everyone is dragged into a roller coaster in which problems multiply at an incredible pace. Carmen will now need to put an end to her past once and for all to rescue her family.Written by
Not that I won't keep watching the thing to the very end, but . . .
It starts off as an interesting crime/drugs/thriller/gangsters streamer, BUT, and this is a big BUT - before long it devolves into a totally ridiculous melodrama. By Season 3 you won't believe how many times you hear characters say "I'm sorry" and then screw everything up. No one doesn't screw up or get screwed up.
Grandma has a remarkable hairdo style. Baldy "Berry," - top thug. "Luther"? - Mystery dude with a real "servant with a crush" complex.
Ultimately, it's like a Laurel & Hardy epic - "Well, this is another fine mess you've gotten me into!"
Serious killings and intrigue, but in the back of your mind you'll be chuckling.
