Hinterland: Scandinavian crime in Aberystwyth, Wales

I've started watching a new Welsh crime series called "Hinterland" (Welsh title: Y Gwyll, which means "The Dusk"). Set in the seaside town of Aberystwyth, it centers around DCI Tom Matthias trying to solve crime in the Ceredigion region.

Strangely enough, the series exists in an English-spoken and a Welsh-spoken version, and even stranger, the Flemish television channel Canvas bought the Welsh version. I love it, such a wonderful language.

The series is beautifully shot, using long tracking shots like some of the better Danish and Swedish series. Looking forward to more episodes.
