Scary maybe but well writing and directed here is an other series, well here is my problem they said it is a mini-series but there may be a second season so I will let you know as soon as I can. However let’s go back to the series shall we. In the series there is this balance between action and psychology trying to get inside the head of a killer. It is not going to be easy for Damien seen his mother since he is with his new girlfriend who has a kid from a previous relationship. Carole Bouquet does an outstanding job here to play this series killer even though she has played plenty of femme fatale before that. The game between her and her son and the manipulation begins. The fear of not finding the killer in time plus other thing is going to be in play. Here is a refreshing thriller that is nice and works well because of its great cast.
