Filmed on location, it opened my eyes to how parts of even major cities in Spain resemble the developing world. The places where the druggy classes were filmed were absolutely perfect for this story. Alongside this lawless milieu over the other side of town, existed fabulous wealth and glamorous parties that ordinary people sometimes got an entree into.
The actors were all believable in their roles and I need to make a special mention of some of the more minor characters, especially the criminal ones. Where did they find these tattooed bruisers and yobs from? You could honestly believe that they were the real thing.
There is a "however" though. The series was getting perilously near to a close and we still didn't have a clue as to who had done it - the original murder, I mean. Well, the answer came completely out of the blue and unexpectedly. There hadn't really been any pointers at all.
Nonetheless, on the way to the ending, there had been tales of drug dealers, corruption, double dealing and personal stories that held the attention and made the motivations of the characters more understandable. There weren't enough clues to justify the whodunnit though and these character backstories didn't develop the plot in terms of giving us a chance to work out the killer. I didn't mind. I was having a good time in front of the screen.
I enjoyed the series and would recommend it.
