So that mixture of an artful veneer and an oversimplified brutal mystery underneath turns out to be its biggest hook, as well as the thing that keeps the series from being something more.

The miniseries is addictive from its very start, although it doesn't take too many risks and some twists and turns can be seen coming. [Full review in Spanish]

The Chestnut Man is a great reminder that the Scandinavians still do this stuff better than anyone. It raises the bar. See it before there's an American remake.

Chestnut Man is free of many of the clichés we know from standard TV, at least until the last episode, which manages to be both very gory and dramatically conventional. Till then, though, it's creepy un-fun.

The Chestnut Man is a gripping, twisted, slow-burn crime thriller that will be a real treat for the fans of the genre.

It might feel like a premise you've encountered before, but in the way Scandi-noir works, it is anchored as much in domesticity as it is in crime fighting.
