Season 2 is superbly made!
21 September 2020 | by tantheta1208See all my reviews

Starting off with season 2 on Netflix, I really enjoyed this show for its claustrophobic investigative narrative, all unfolding a crime in the police investigation room. Loved every episode of season 2 for its screenplay, dialogue and brilliant performances by the cast. Each crime different and each interview with the suspect setup so differently that it never failed to engage.

I later went on to watch season 1 which I did not find as compelling as 2. Also happened to check the ratings for the show post watching season 2 and could not understand the low ratings. Don't give up on this show after watching season 1, season 2 is a far superior watch.
