Nesbitt and O'Connor are stunning. Equally brilliant is Tcheky Karyo, who plays the French detective Julien Baptiste.

There have been an awful lot of movies and shows about lost children, but The Missing elevates the familiar dynamic to a new level with a gut wrenching mystery.

I liked it enough to want to know how it ends. I'll likely watch the whole thing, but it's one of those shows that has elements that are tough to take, and I'd understand if some potential audience members gave it a miss.

The Missing is a closed-end series, promising a conclusion at the end of its eight episodes. Painful as that journey may be, the show and these actors hit all the notes that make us want to come along.

The Missing... is sometimes grueling to watch. But it earns a place in haunting crime drama next to the recent Broadchurch and Top of the Lake.

November 14, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It is a riveting, heartbreaking, fascinating drama, taking a subject that could easily have been turned into a Lifetime TV Movie melodrama and making it real with its subtle, character-driven grace notes and the breakneck speed of its elaborate plotting.
