Strong story that keeps you guessing up until the end.
I liked it. It's nice to see a series that has a head and a tail, that doesn't leave you in limbo at the end, vaguely aiming at possible sequels. Here we start with a murder and a disappearance in episode 1, and every next episode brings new clues (alongside new questions), so that more and more the mysteries get solved. While the script (by creator and famous thriler-writer Harlan Coben) keeps you on the edge of your chair until the last minutes of the last episode!
The acting is - as in any other British detective series - flawless by every character, up until in the smallest parts. But Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six feet under) really stands out as the concerned, frustrated and gradually exasperated father who desperately tries to find his daughter, behaving in the process as a bull on the loose in a china-shop. Co-star Amanda Abbington is also great, but I kept being a bit distracted by her weird haircut. And special mention of the actors that played the family Marshall, who were very funny!
