Payback (2023 – ) Season 1

Lexie Noble becomes entangled in a police operation to topple a notorious crime lord, Cal Morris.

My thoughts: Love the premise  Less enamored of the execution.  A resounding meh.


Snabba Cash (2021 – ) Season 1

The entrepreneurial jet set and the criminal world are more brutal, chaotic, and ruthless than ever. When these two worlds collide, loyalty, friendships, and business partners will be tested in the never-ending quest for easy money.

My thoughts: This one was a pleasant surprise.  Evin Ahmad’s Leya is terrific.


Blanca (2021 – ) Season 1

Blanca, a blind profiler, comes back to Genova, her hometown. A difficult case forces her to remain and to face with her mysterious past.

My thoughts: Silly and rife with implausibilities, but fun, a visual delight, and Maria Chiara Giannetta is oh so watchable.


Snabba Cash (2021 – ) Season 2

The lives of an ambitious businesswoman, a troubled teenager, and a charming gang enforcer collide during a desperate, and sinister, pursuit of wealth.

My thoughts: A thrilling descent into the gritty Swedish underworld, but the finale wraps up in all too convenient fashion.


Unforgotten (2015 – ) Season 4

London detectives investigate crimes from the past, unravelling secrets left buried for years.

My thoughts: One of the better season-long mystery shows.  Solid, but not as strong as season 3.  And that ending….

  1. I’m waiting for season 5 for the Unforgotten to become part of Prime on Amazon. Not sure I want it to end.

  2. Is “Longmire” on your list or is that off limits because of LDP? The books are excellent!

  3. I am so pleased that you found my favorite crime series, Unforgotten, enjoyable. Yes, series 4’s ending. I think that you will be similarly impressed with series 5.
