Storyline

When teenager Lara is found hanged at the local ballet school it is assumed that she committed suicide; detective Gabríela believes there is more to it than that and starts digging into the girl's life. She isn't the only person investigating; Lara's parents have employed a lawyer to look into the case. As the series progresses it becomes apparent there are a lot of very unpleasant things going on; a pair of boys are posting videos of girls having sex onto the internet, a ballet teacher who bullies his students and gives them drugs, an adoptive father who clearly has something to hide and some young men who are getting teenage girls hooked on drugs before forcing them into prostitution.

an Icelandic crime series
8 October 2017 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

SPOILER: "Case" is an Icelandic crime series, a spin off apparently from another show.

When a teenager, Lara, is found hanged, suicide is presumed, but one detective, Gabriella, is suspicious there might be another cause. Meanwhile the girl's parents have hired an attorney to investigate as well.

What is uncovered is a hot mess -- the young woman was a promising ballet student, and it is learned that the ballet master was not only a bully, but giving his students drugs.

Then there are videos on the Internet of some of the girls having sex, and a crime ring that is getting underage girls hooked on drugs and turning them into prostitutes.

This is a Wallander-type series - dark and depressing. It's also sexually graphic and a little on the slow side. At the end, there are some unresolved matters because there possibly was a season 2 or at least plans for one. There is a subplot involving the lead detective's sister who has some mental health issues. Actually the season ends on what may be the beginning of an entire new plot for her.

It's so interesting to watch something un-Hollywood - no one is glamoured up, and there is frontal nudity of men as well as women, which is unusual. It was also fascinating to see parts of Iceland and hear the language.

Good characterizations and acting are real highlights as well as a plot that will keep you guessing.
