Excellent snowy drama/thriller
23 April 2019 | by TommyDfromDSee all my reviews

This series has it all: interesting story with multiple plot lines, nice balance between drama and thriller, good acting by everyone involved (Finnish actress Iina Kuustonen is a marvel to watch), and last but not least beautiful shots of vast snowy landscapes in Lapland. Fingers crossed for a second season! 8/10
