Great detective series filmed in Havana, Cuba
I am always on the lookout for good crime / detective shows and since I understand Spanish, I figured this was worth a try. Well I must say that this series is an excellent choice for a Netflix and chill evening. The acting is top notch and the stories are very believable due to the well written scripts. The two episodes I have seen so far intertwine the cases with personal lives that are very interesting and almost better than the cases. They actually shoot the episodes in Cuba, mostly Havana, and it takes place in 1997-98. The decadence of the old Havana is shown throughout the series by showing those beautiful building and architecture as they fall apart from a lack of maintenance and tender loving care (probably based on the embargo). I highly recommend this series and would have scored it higher except for the occasional lapses in continuity in story telling. But it is still a very worthwhile show that makes you want to continue watching other episodes. I hope more episodes are in the making.
