This review is from: Shetland - Series 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
This series has quite a Nordic Noir feel- -although it is English!
The setting is very much a part of the story-stunning scenery, a remote island, long ,dark winters and 'white nights' in Summer- so there are geographical similarities to Scandinavia.
You get the feel of the island community - which can be quite scary at times! The main character-Jimmy Perez- and his team are very well portrayed, as are other characters.
The stories are gripping and quite creepy at times-definitely a 'do not disturb' watch!
Personally, I do not have any problem understanding the dialogue, and I love the Scottish accents.
Hope there will be a third series.
