Not what I expected
The story is not as coherent as it should be. Several elements are referred to without any prior mentioning of them. Several sequences are merely stock scenes glued together without meaning. Very very cliché. Several items in the investigation don't add up either. I understand that it is difficult to write these things nowadays, but I had expected something infinitely better after reading the other comments. Also something seems amiss in the casting: the accents are awkwardly mixed, and the actors don't quite fit the characters. The action and enunciation are not fit together. Also, a lot of themes seem to be introduced, which are not followed up, nor even explained. I do admire the attempt to mix the whodunit with the flashbacks, and the psyche of the investigator, but it is no more than an attempt. It seems that nobody knew what they were doing at the time, and took things that could be successful, and put them together, hoping it would become coherent, which it doesn't. It is bizarre, but not in a good way. Honestly, I know quite a few things that are a lot better. Of course, this is all just my humble, yet bitterly honest opinion...
