Tom Hardy takes this show on the another level

This mini series are well done and strangely not that popular. It is dark and brutal crime story . Main character (Tom Hardy) as you can see from the start is a psychopathic person, so he is doing what psychopath usually does and that is hard to watch and swallow. Tom Hardy is acting brilliantly that kind of a person.By the time I finished watching the show I was completely appalled and disgusted by the character he was portraying. Rest of the actors has done a good job as well. Highly recommended, but be aware what kind of feelings this TV show might give you.
