Synopsis:
Kahina Zadi (Leila Bekhti), a French police officer, travels to Kiruna, a small mining community in remote northern Sweden, to investigate a brutal murder of a French citizen. With the help of Anders Harnesk (Gustaf Hammarsten), a Swedish DA and a member of the Sami, an ancient, mysterious indigenous tribe of Scandinavia, they are faced with new killings and the initial murder turns out to be the tip of the iceberg. Kahina and Anders come to realise that behind the killings is a ten-year-old secret conspiracy involving many of the town's inhabitants. Kahina finds herself confronting a ruthless serial killer, always one step ahead, a macabre plan, and her own painful past.

weak and wierd - Midnight Sun review by RD

Spoiler Alert
18/04/2018

This appears to be done to the usual successful template of Euro-Scandinavian thrillers but doesn't quite reach the mark.

The plot is a bit thin and feels slow even though things are happening at a reasonable pace, but the characters are suddenly introduced and not portrayed with any depth to become interesting, and we were left with a lack of involvement throughout. Then towards the end of episode 3 it turned towards ethinic superstition and magic, oh dear.

There's a continuous teaser sub-plot of the french detective as a young girl, and a mysterious young lad who arrives at her flat in Paris to her great shock. Unfortunately the reason behind the shock and the sub-plot is not shared with the viewer, so after a bit the "who cares" feeling sets in, and with everything else we just couldn't be bothered to continue to disc 2 and gave up on the series.
