All that personal history of our lead character the show implied but never discussed in the first season hits us like a brick wall in the second season. There are still cases to be solved, but suddenly the show is half about the cases, and half about the personal lives and behaviour of the staff of the police station. And I feel lied-to by the first season, which said "this is a show about solving cases." Not anymore: now its all about its characters - which interest me less. See Detective Stories in TV and Movies. And to add insult to insult, they end with a cliffhanger. I doubt I'll be returning to this series.
