We gave it an A

When a decades-old skeleton is found at a Reykjavík construction site, an emotionally crippled detective digs into the very cold case while coping with his strung-out daughter.

Ick Factor
Moderate: the skeleton’s history, its ghoulish excavation, plus grislier aspects of addiction.

Lowdown
Two dramatic stories hurtle toward each other from decades apart, like a time-travel tale in which everyone is either already dead or getting there fast.
