| Canada does Scandi....pretty well.SPOILERS
Highly intriguing first episode, with a lot of Scandi vibes. Ominous music score, vast cold open spaces, lots of torches used, missing kids and an apparent clash of the sexes between Det.John Cardinal and his unwanted new assistant, Delorme whom he fobs off by giving her some B&E cases to occupy her while he tackles the more exciting homicide work. Apparently very routine but John Cardinal a dirty cop ? We discover that he is being discreetly investigated and suspected of being in cahoots with a local drug lord and...his innocent new assistant is a police snoop, planted to keep an eye on him. The main crime story is about missing children (reminiscent of The Killing) with searches in dark cold uncomfortable places where the need for torches is paramount. A very well directed and acted episode and having the transparently honest upright good guy Billy Campbell as a "dirty cop" is inspired casting. Karine Vanasse as his assistant Delorme catches the eye too. There are other subplots, mainly a spate of burglaries which look like an unconnected open-and-shut case, at this time..but are they. I have high hopes for this one
