Jackie Fink is a brilliant but unassuming CIA engineer and single mom who leads a team of desk jockeys into the field as secret agents. Overlooked in the workplace, their invisibility makes them perfect for the CIA's most covert missions.
Sheds some light on a sensitive topic. The series has it's share of creepiness, something unavoidable when dramatizing widespread sexual abuse by Catholic clergy. At times it feels like an attempt to capitalize on the subject rather than inform or entertain -- like the exploitive sexual encounter between 2 consenting male characters thrown in that contributes nothing to the plot.
Spreads itself a bit thin by trying to turn the subject into a murder mystery, and adding a dash of social commentary without fully committing to either. Overall it falls short of being a top-notch crime thriller or an awareness raising drama.
Interesting series, however, I think it would have had more punch in the hands of a Nordic production company.
