Giri / Haji

This 8-part series about a Japanese cop sent to London to investigate a Yakuza-connected murder sounds like a police procedural, but it quickly morphs into something else.  Part crime story, part family drama, part romantic comedy with a dash of absurdist ballet – I don’t know how to characterize it, but I liked it.  The characters are interesting, the performances are good, and the ending is suitably unsettled.  Check it out.

On Netflix.
