For One Who's Seen Tons of Police Procedurals on Amazon: THIS is a Perfect Watch!
I'm always afraid I will run out of mysteries and police dramas to watch on Amazon. Luckily, there are so many foreign films of this genre so that fans like me get to see new stories and settings. This one was another one worth watching. The viewer gets to know many characters who are struggling with solving the crime as well as their own lives. You don't know what will come up next but it all fits in to one great story.

Suspenseful, satisfying, holds your attention to the end
The series got better and better with each episode. At first the characters seemed to be stereotypes, but by the end of episode 2 you really cared about each person. The plot was complex and the ending was satisfying. I hope they make another series with these characters. Excellent show.

Shelve Your Bias
Negative commenters obviously have never been to Australia and are applying US standards of behavior. I appreciated all the actors, but especially liked Yoson An, who played Charlie, the young detective trainee. It is great to see diversity because it exists and not because the social justice warriors insist upon it. There are four episodes of about an hour each. Watch the first one and if you do not like it, move on. As for me, I hope there is a season 2.

Film has Many Scenes that Don't Fit
Several scenes that made no sense. When car was in woods and where girl ended up shooting bad guy there was a film shot where it showed a person in the woods watching them. However, this person watching had no impact on the movie so what was the point? After the bad guy is shot there is a scene later on where he is captured but has no holes in pants or is limping. Also, the scene where the detective confronts the bad guy who went from no guns in his hands to two weapons in his hands and the detective didn't shot him. Not a real life scene as a real detective would have shot the bad guy immediately. Part of the training. Why would a police officer allow the bad guy to wave two weapons around giving him the chance to shot someone. A low budget movie without good technical review.

If you're 9 yrs old...
If you are about 9 yrs old you might enjoy this. But not if you are 9 and intelligent. This is worth 2 stars because I had absolutely nothing else to do, and it was mildly entertaining because it was so BAD. But go ahead and enjoy -- if you like fake Chinese accents, predictable plots, nonsensical sub-plots, and really really awful acting. Rachel Griffiths (Grace) did the best she could with what she had to work with, but she should sue her agent. The real problem for me was, it was neither a comedy nor a believable romance, nor was it an engaging drama. There were scraps of humor that were rather sophomoric, there was supposed to be a love relationship so deep that one would confess to murder to protect another (but only for a few hours), a pregnant woman whose water breaks like Niagara Falls during questioning...and a multitude of characters who added nothing. They weren't even red herrings. Bland and stupid and definitely not worth spreading out over multiple episodes. Maybe it would have been an okay 30-minute Keystone cops comedy with a little juicing up, but no. It just dragged on and on.

ABSOLUTELY the WORST CRIME SHOW EVER !! Don;t waste your time !!
This show starts out stupid. Bad dialogue, no likeable characters. AND then gets worse and worse.
NOT believable at all. Boring characters incriminate themselves for NO REASON !! And then lie for no reason to make things worse? Truly too stupid to explain. AVOID.

Could have been a 5 Star!
If I only watched Episode 1, this review would be 0.5. It does get better but the main character played by Rachel Griffiths is one dimensional so I deducted 1 star. The plot does get better but then the writers decide to have the lead detective (played by Rachel) tell the boyfriend of the missing suspect about a possible connection to an ongoing investigation. Absolutely ridiculous! Hence, the removal of a 2nd star.
This is not a must watch but "I have nothing better to watch" type of show and since it is only 4 episodes of less than 1 hour each, it is palatable.

WE (wife and I) have watched so many cop shows (dozens and dozens) from so many countries (US, UK,
AUS, FRA,, Scandanavia) for so many years (decades) that we consider ourselves to be probably better qualified to give an honest review from a viewer's perspective than just about anyone.
That said then, we are totally mystified by the nitpicking BS of all the negative reviews. It's as if they
are watching a completely different show! Don't be fooled, this was an excellent show, well written,
well filmed, good action, good character development. An easy 5 stars. Even more so for getting all that
into only 4 episodes. But don't believe us, see for yourself, watch the 1st episode...see what you think!
