Very intriguing! I loved every twist and turn, and was not disappointed.
The series is really a two-part drama. Two story arcs. The first arc is suspenseful, beautifully shot, and interesting to follow. The second arcis suspenseful, beautifully shot, and pretty much impossible to follow. Maybe a lot gets lost in the translation. At any rate I have no idea why most of the stuff happened in arc 2.
I want more.
Superb actors and storyline. Well written show. Excellent storytellers and suspenseful thriller!
