From the Daily Dot
Netflix's Finnish crime drama Deadwind is a perfectly fine procedural. And that is the show's biggest weakness. The series kicks off with the discovery of a dead woman (of course) found on a beach. The show primarily follows the lead detective on the case, Sofia Karppi. The mystery steadily deepens and the show works its way through red-herrings like clockwork. You've seen this show. You've seen it many times. Deadwind is a meat-and-potatoes show that delivers exactly what the genre calls for, no more and no less. Casual viewers are better off watching something else.
