Bite-Sized Review: 

I watched this Belgian show a while back now and enjoyed it despite some flaws. It is generally very well-written and played. Good visuals and an interesting, atmospheric score. 

A worthwhile watch, especially if you enjoy dark, disturbing, crime-related drama with a twist.

It is absolutely essential that you are able to suspend disbelief for this show to work, so if that isn’t your thing this just won’t work for you. 

If series 2 (there is one) ever arrives in the U.K. there will be another review.
