Monster - 2017 - 7/10
Another teenage girl disappears in remote north of Norway.
Local authorities receive unasked for help from Oslo.
Big city cops, with heavy handed technique.
Eventually, they find a body - the first of many - in an open field.
Soon a dozen corpses are unearthed in the same expanse, revealing a large maze-like pattern filled with bodies and bones going back hundreds of years.
Multiple threads quilt this series: A religious sect, with roots in early Christian, a smuggling gang, a town history of incinerations and infidelities. Secrets cling to almost every character.
This being a TV show, secrets shall be exposed.
Not all, however, as many elements remain baffling, at least to this outsider.
I imagine Scandinavians would shrug and say, “Oh, polar night, sure,” along with other curiosities.
At seven episodes (that conclude!) this is easy to watch without a major time commitment.
