This new series sees Mathias thrown back into an old case that has intrigued him since his early days working in Aber, a case that threatens to drive an irreconcilable rift through the team.

Over the past 2 seasons I have been reading several mystery/detective procedural novels based in Wales. The country filled with long desolate highways, curved roads, isolated villages and dark pasts. However, the people are engaging and full of history. Hinterland is a BBC Wales four-part television series set and largely filmed in the coastal town of Aberystwyth, Wales. Now, Netflix has 'Hinterland' to stream into your homes.
In this small town, DCI, Tom Mathias played by Richard Harrington, has made his place. He fits into the landscape very well, dark and dour without a smile. He has a past history, and we learn about it little by little in this series. He lived in a mobile home on a vast area of land, and the home was as bleak as the man. However, at the end of season 2, the Mobil home was set into flames, and Mathias was injured. His colleagues, Mali Harries plays DI Mared Rhys. She has beautiful eyes and knows this land as her own. If you have viewed several BBC series, I don't think you will have any difficulty with the accents. I was able to catch and understand every word.
For a small town, there are murders a plenty. Four episodes fill this series, and in each, the storyline will convince you to continue. The characters are all so well presented. No background, we learn as we go, so to speak. We learn DCI Mathias is an intelligent, excellent detective. He has his own secrets, and while his colleagues are investigating who injured him, he has several cases of his own. However, they all seem to connect. He can also lead a group with expertise. His team is well rounded, learning to work together, and no one should be late. The murders are mysterious, and not for the faint of heart. Clever murderers, but the DCI is one step ahead of them. This last series has several twists and turns, and several surprises. I do wish Mathias could smile once in a while, will it be?
