Its a dark twisted show about a serial killer and a mystery to be solved. There is a lot of violence toward women: gang rape, murder, mutilation, pimps, domestic abuse with rape, and allusions of child prostitution. You know, entertainment.

But at the core its a mystery, with a group of school friends reunited years later as adults and facing questions during the investigation by a police detective trying to find the killer. What happened in the past? Who is the killer? No one? Everyone?

The concepts of making perfume play an important thematic role in the story. It definitely has great visuals and excellent acting. The murder and mutilation are quite original.

My only complaint, beside the egregeous abuse of women, is that there are so many actors that the plot bounces around a lot and the story doesn't focus on the investigation enough, its more a collage of all the F'd Up people involved. Its still very well done.

If you like Hinterland (Y Gwyll), you'll probably like this.

Its filmed in Germany, with German language, but the English dubing is very well done. Although sometimes you can see the lips don't quite sync up, at other times its seamless and you hardly notice it at all.

Following a guideline similar to the movie from 2006, A series of strange murders reveal the complicated and twisted world of perfume making. in a very crude European way the show is very explicit, has beautiful photography and art, but sadly it also has a very disappointing almost hurried ending.
