Decent acting, tough story!
5 April 2019 | by patrios-56284See all my reviews

I didn't expect much, so I have been surprised by a well written swedish show. The acting - especially of the main character Maya and her lawyer- has been very good. Some characters could have been scripted a bit deeper, but the surrounding of a tough story with a lot of ups and downs is worth watching. There have been a lot of bad shows on Netflix in the near past: This was none of them!
