Reviews of ‘The Sinner’
Overall, The Sinner 4 delivers what it is famous for, a suspenseful detective story with enough drama, surprises, and mystery. The series differs in several levels: firstly, the theme is dark but not depressing; secondly, the tempo is slower; and the supernatural components have been largely replaced with the quirks of the human mind. The Sinner takes its time, never allowing particular pieces of the mystery to overshadow the development of the characters or the overall tale. The conclusion is both amazing and melancholy. However, some plots remained untouched with the point of their fans. But still, it is far more engaging to watch for all criminal thriller fans. The program is available to watch on Netflix.
