For example, the first two seasons deal with the murder of just one girl, before moving on to a fresh case in season three.
There are a lot of twists and you will find that your trust of certain characters will come and go, then come back again, then go again.
In my opinion, the first two seasons did drag on a bit, with there being a lot of episodes in each season.
Season three is a lot shorter, and cuts to the point a lot quicker.
It was worth the watch, but I wouldn't watch it again, so my advice is to rent it.
My wife enjoyed it a lot more than I did.
The story differs from the original ie the killer is not the same and thus this makes the final outcome different. I was able to identify the killer quite will hidden but always obvious (to say more would give the plot away) however there was a great twist in the final episode which was astounding and showed that the killer did not work alone.....his accomplice will sadden and amaze you! Sarah Linden will not amaze you however she may as a detective have proved more than capable but as a mother she is a total failure. She appears to work 24 hours per day, live out of motels, eat only ready made fast food, and more importantly leave her poor son Jack all alone to deal with his own teenage angst...is it any wonder that her proposed marriage never happens and that Jack finally returns to live with his father in Chicago.
The American series does suffer from the fact that it is unnecessarily long and would have benefited from some good editing; there is one complete chapter devoted to the search for Jack who disappears (not that I blame you Jack with a mother like Sarah Linden) and we spend a wasted 45 minutes in an attempt to locate him.....Read more ›
If you like a good who done it, and are willing to wait and enjoy the ride then you cannot beat this. it may not be for everyone, it may take some a while to get it, but no one can fault the genius here, it makes this stand out so far from other shows that I feel I have wasted so much watching the same crap.....I rarely find a show zi love, but this is one of those.
