Review: That said, there’s still quite a bit to enjoy here. If you’ve ever picked up one of Coben’s 30(!) novels, you’ll have an idea of what you’re in for. The crime mastermind is known for twisting and turning through intricate, layered puzzles, and delivering deeply satisfying – if bonkers – conclusions. Shock and awe comes far above realism in the pecking order.
As such, the first two episodes of Safe feel like a standard crime procedural on crack: revelations and fresh mysteries crop up left, right and centre. It’s a little exhausting, sure, but it’s difficult not to get carried along in its tailwind, and the urge to immediately consume the next episode is strong.The plot goes like this: the aforementioned Tom, a paediatric surgeon, discovers that his 17-year-old daughter Jenny has inexplicably disappeared after attending a party in their upper-middle class gated community.
Uninspired by the prospect of his current squeeze, Amanda Abbington’s copper Sophie, leading the investigation, he takes matters into his own hands, and goes door to door around the neighbourhood attempting to trace his daughter’s steps. Sounds straightforward, right?
Issue is, totally everybody is concealing something. Pete dropped Jenny home after the gathering and fail to say it; Tom seems to have accomplished something unpleasant on the night his better half passed away – Jenny can’t stand him therefore; and Emma , a blow-in from the city who turns into Sophie’s partner, has touched base around the local area for reasons she won’t divulge.Then there are good for nothing as an afterthought riddles to consider. One sees a family concealing the demise of a young man at their local gathering. Another, which takes after an instructor under scrutiny for purportedly laying down with an understudy, will doubtlessly demonstrate its significance a little further down the line.The previous, which has the vibe of a dim parody escapade, is somewhat out-of-step tonally yet it is presumably as great a sign as any of how genuinely we ought to take the entire thing.
Corridor is comfortable playing a disturbed individual in trouble (see Dexter), and he shows fine science with Abbington amid their constrained time on screen together in the initial two scenes. Ideally that relationship will get somewhat more introduction as the arrangement advances. As far as concerns them, Arterton and Warren emerge as questionable supporting players. Either could be somehow associated with Jenny’s vanishing, yet the same could be said of, well, everybody.All in all, it’s good, soapy fun. If you’re willing to suspend your disbelief, you’re likely to get swept up in its current, and once that happens, I’d wager that all eight episodes will safely disappear in a flash.
