Cassidy’s Review

This is another of those shows where you think you know what’s going on, but the reality is you’re pretty much twisting on a string right up to the end trying to figure out who did what and why. And on top of that there’s a lot of personal drama going on that complicate matter even more.

If there’s one thing this show does, it’s make Helsinki look like a frozen hellhole that one wouldn’t want to visit if they suffered from depression.

A second season is currently (as of Sept, 2018) being written.

Rachel’s Review

Okay, at first, I didn’t think I would like this series. The main character didn’t seem particularly likable and the story just felt like it wasn’t going anywhere.

And then I somehow ended up binging on five episodes in one sitting and discovered I was addicted.

And, that unlikable main character? She ended up totally likable;-)

Cassidy is totally right about the twists too. Just when you think you have a handle on what’s going on, it changes again. And again. And, then, once more for good measure.
