One wonders why the BBC insisted on filming every scene twice just so English viewers didn't have to read some subtitles! This is an excellent series in the true 'Nordic Noir' manner shot in a dark but compelling landscape that grips you from the first scene through to the last. BBC Wales has become the best of drama production facilities for the BBC (Just look at Doctor Who), and demonstrates time and again that it should be the lead facility for BBC drama in the UK - imagine what they could do with Eastenders!!!
A 'must have' series for your collection....and I hope the second series will follow soon!!!

This would have been so much better if done in French with subtitles. As it is not I feel this misses the mark, but clearly it will have an appeal to fans of Police procedurals based in Paris. Using Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan) as a Nun (really?) does little other than to add her name to the cast to make it saleable in Canada.
If there is a Season 2 let us hope it is done better!

A great series, and a great season. What a pity though that SyFy put the entire crew and cast under such pressure to make 20 episodes only for the Season 5 (coming) to be cut short at 6 episodes (and a series wrap-up to boot!). Something went horribly wrong and one can see the principal cast struggling to maintain dynamism and quality for some of the extra 7 episodes inflicted upon them by SyFy for this season.
Fans though need this season box set in their collection as a must have!
