I sure do. I just finished NF's heaping feast of "Spotless". It's the story of two French brothers, who have a dark past, that end up living in England. The married brother runs a forensic cleaning service and the other is a petty criminal. They run afoul of a local gangster, Brendon Coyle of Downton Abbey, who presses them into his service by having them clean up his messes for big money. Fully developed with a pretty wife, hot teen daughter, and a precoscious son, the story melds all the various elements into one big blender with good result.
Things start to really roll around episode three.
If you don't like Brit Crime, skip it. Why don't we have such creativity from our tele-writers?
And I'm sick of every actor, whether movie and TV, in commercials, sports, or news speaking West London.
Finished the 10 episodes. Nothing really resolved. It is set up to continue on. But it will never continue. Apparently the plans for another season were a victim of the demise of the Esquire network, which showed the series and owned it. Too bad. It was good, But just left hanging. Good stuff, it deserved a better fate.
Did not quite expect the notes of humor. Thugs arguing about the old Western The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance? Tarantino redux. But I'm into the main story line. Enjoying it.
So well done!

All tree of the films are tremendous.
Have you read the 4 books?
If you think the films are good, every time I read the books, I had to go and was the dirt and corruption off me.
I used to spent a lot of time in the north of England in the period covered y the books and there is something VERY real about them.
Yes I am a sucker for both Brit crime and Scandinavian crime. I will definitely check out this one. Good reviews.
I just watched a Swedish NF called Quicksand- about a girl accused in a school shooting. Pretty good, 6 quick episodes. Always looking for more of this kind of stuff.
