Low Winter Sun starts in full force: with one brutal murder. And for the rest of the episodes it’s your turn to discover the premises and what lead to such a chain of events. This is one intriguing and captivating aspect that makes the series stand from the rest of your typical police TV shows.
While other shows like to get mixed and lost in ‘sight-seeing’ and secondary stories this is not the case this time around. The show stays fixed on the main story and even doing so it has so much to give and so many reasons to stay on your toes in order not to miss a single drop of information.
Being also more realistic than much of the romanticized version of the life in a police department, Low Winter Sun follows the story of Frank Agnew (played by Mark Strong), a homicide detective in Detroit and Joe Geddes (Lennie James) a veteran in the job, after they both kill a fellow police man, Brendan McCann (Michael McGrandy) and make it look like a suicide.
What reason they had and who is the bad guy in this TV show is left to be discovered throughout the high paced and engaging episodes.
