Wait until the run is over and binge this show so you're not exhausted by all the twists and turns.

Dublin Murders might have made for a pleasingly mopey whodunnit along the lines of Shetland or Broadchurch if Phelps weren't so obviously unsure of her source material.

Lucky for us, "Dublin Murders" revels in characters that can both sink and swim.

Certainly it was atmospheric, often terrific, never dull, but I suspect many were befuddled by the leaps between two plots.

That storyline, based on the second of French's books to be used, ends in a way not worth telling because it's not even momentarily interesting.
November 8, 2019
Dublin Murders offers a satisfyingly dark and twisty crime thriller, anchored by strong performances from Scott and Greene.
November 8, 2019
The psychological mystery takes many twists and turns as it winds its way to an almost inevitable conclusion, and at times it takes modest but bizarre detours.

It is a tasty slice of cut-and-come-again cake, even if the relationship between Cassie and Rob - upon which the credibility of the story turns (or will, if faithful to the books) - is not yet sufficiently close or well-drawn.

It's a refreshing if unsettling reminder that life is full of unanswered and haunting questions.
November 8, 2019
Dublin Murders is very good indeed.
November 7, 2019
Despite the intriguing, emotional world that the series builds through a deeply atmospheric setting and compelling narrative ideas, Dublin Murders lurches through its final hours and comes out murky, confused, and unnecessarily rushed.

It all helped to build the haunting ambiguity of the piece...melancholy landscape shots, claustrophobic interiors and Volker Bertelmann's disturbing soundtrack intensified the effect.

You could forgive the ending's murkiness because the series earned it.

Dublin Murders looks and feels authentic.

It is busy, flitting between the now and the then, but also strangely inert, with no mounting drama or tension. It may be too bitty. A bit here, a bit there.

After eight episodes, countless plot twists and even more anxiously puffed cigarettes, the knotty Irish crime thriller reached its compelling conclusion.

Indeed, after two episodes I'm already losing patience with a drama that can't decide whether it wants to be a tricksy exploration of dark angst or is just content to get on with the story.

Dublin Murders might not be one for the craic addicts, but I find it hoary nevertheless. I feel, somehow, that I've seen it all before.
October 15, 2019
The writers have an unusually inventive way of toying with the audience's expectations by blindsiding you.

Dublin Murders is accurate but so unimaginative, it might as well be called the Ronseal Police Investigation Show, because it does exactly what it says on the tin.
