Crime - Season 2

Unfortunately, Crime goes so far that it feels like a cabinet of curiosities.

Every character seems to have a trauma or secret. An agent in the lead role with a heavy heart is apparently no longer enough. It's a bit overkill. Too bad, because the story is impressive. Especially when the last episode runs, you will be surprised by the sophisticated structure of this season. Watching Crime gives you mixed feelings. The dark nature of the series suffers from the excess of traumas and other discomfort.

That knowledge is a shame when you see the quality with which the actors portray their roles. Dougray Scott (Vigil) portrays a convincing tearful and heavy-handed detective Ray Lennox. His sultry relationships with women and with his psychologist Sally Hart (Laura Fraser, Traces) in particular create tension. Joanna Vanderham (The Paradise) initially seems like a cool frog in her role as Amanda Drummond, but has a triple layer underneath. As Tommy Stark, David Elliot (Vigil) portrays a typical antisocial bastard with a small heart and a very big mouth. That's how I can name the entire cast and praise their performance.

Crime has an appropriate setting in the very beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh.



The main story about the investigation into the brutal murders is somewhat obscured by all those personal concerns. It must be said that the various storylines come together in a clever way in the last episode. It remains uncertain for a long time what lies behind the hatred against those who are murdered one by one. The perpetrator puts so much effort into it that it is clear that there must be a connection between the various victims. Just like in other crime series, a bond develops between Ray and the perpetrator. In the end it will turn out that the relationship is completely different than expected.

Crime has an appropriate setting in the very beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh. The images shot are generally just as drearily filmed as the story. The combination of dark with that historical background works fantastic. The Scottish English-speaking protagonists give Crime an authentic atmosphere. In that respect everything fits perfectly. It's just a shame that the makers went a little too far with all those personal traumas and secrets. If that had been given a little less emphasis, the story about the murders would probably have been more impressive. On the other hand, I must also acknowledge that the personal background of a number of important characters sets the tone for that impressive finale.
