Watching the (foreign) detectives

I never look this normal in the show. I’m quite dysfunctional. Trust me. But what do you expect when they spell the word “Police” with three i’s.
The real mystery is why I am standing in the water. Am I investigating the death of a seahorse?
Someday when I am older, I will solve mysteries. For now, I will look like a Gap model from the 90s.
If you’ve got a murder to solve, find anyone else but this crew. Even the Waverley Police department in New South Wales wouldn’t make so many mistakes. (Mostly because the NSW Police don’t do anything, but it does leave them mistake-free)

“The series reflects the commitment made in April 2013 by the Director of BBC Cymru Wales, Rhodri Talfan Davies, to show more Welsh language, life, and culture on the mainstream BBC channels.” — Wikipedia

Flawed characters are always great for gritty realism. This one might be a bit too flawed.

“The foreign investigator is Arnar Böðvarsson, an Icelandic expatriate living in Oslo, Norway. Arnar notes that the victims must have known the killer, because there are no defence wounds. An envelope is found in Ómar’s safe, containing a photograph of Thor, Ómar, an unknown woman, and a group of teenage boys. Ómar’s son Ragnar recognizes the photograph as of the staff and residents of Valhalla, a boys’ home near Borgarnes, and identifies the woman as Brynja Þorsteinsdóttir. Hákon Jensen, the Borgarnes police chief, visits Brynja’s home and discovers she is missing. Kata searches Valhalla and finds Brynja’s body, with identical eye wounds to the other victims.”
