a strong crime drama
Harry is one of those TV shows where your "vote" or number of starts you attribute to it doesn't matter. If you expect CSI New Zealand you'll probably be disappointed. But if you like it, you'll want more.
Harry is almost a docudrama which is at the same time it's highlight yet makes it less accessible to average viewers. As in real life, private problems influence the profession. In particular, main character's doubts and personal demons have a strong impact on his decisions. Since he is a police officer this will create real danger for the people involved. As the story progresses it becomes darker and might alienate the viewers who expect light fun after a long day at work.
Overall, Harry is a well done TV show with actors delivering a fine performance. It is based on true events and might affect your impression about otherwise idyllic image of New Zealand.
