Different crime story when you know the killer from the beginning.
Verified purchase
Very well acted. More of a psychological drama that lures the viewer into the world of both the killer and the the female inspector in charge of the investigation. Did not anticipate ending and was left somewhat perplexed.
DId not understand why such a violent prisoner was not in restraints while being interviewed by professionals.
Nonetheless, well worth watching.

Intriguing and Frightening
Verified purchase
The actor playing Spector was almost too realistic and frightening. A morbid role very well done. I didn't find fault in anyone and their roles. This series kept me on edge and engrossed and some scenes were alarming even for a jaded psychiatric nurse. Captivating and eerie. Deserving of 5 stars.

disappointing

It's on Netflix so don't waste your money. A let down after the first two season. Save your money and skip it.
