Here is a great series who does not waste time in telling the story. Trust me when I say it is addictive big time, as well as well written, filmed beautifully well with soft light, and add to that talented actresses and actors. It is not you typical hollywood blockbuster series thank god for that. There is only 3 episodes but I think there is 4 new ones that is coming out soon but I am not sure yet. You see those are women who are determined to find the killer, they play ordinary women, everyday women from back in the day with their own set of fear. After the war Suzan fells the need to feel useful again she is not your ordinary person that what her friends say of her. She is brilliant at solving puzzle. In the other hand they have Millie who has a photographic memory, see at the time there were not copy machine so the could go town office or library and photocopy what they needed instead they have millie who has a photographic memory and that is becoming handy. The writing is center on character development as well on the steps of the investigation on how they are going to catch the killer. Everyone loves a great murder mystery you can’t go wrong with this one. Here is the thing I just find out there is a second series was broadcast in 2014 there will not be a third, it was not renewed.
