Netflix recently added a gory option to its list that focuses on real-life events about famous murders in modern Barcelona and Catalonia. The third season focuses on the police work involved in solving the cases. Did you miss it?
The production has three seasons available—two with ten episodes and a special with four—dubbed in Spanish and created by Carles Porta, a journalist who recounts the events and motives that led to the terrible crimes committed in Catalonia. In this sense, these are cases that are part of the collective imagination and are characterized by their dramatic turns that enrich the narrative.
We are talking about a crime series that combines the reconstruction of temporal actions with the construction of characters, offering the viewer an intense mix of tension and emotional movements. These real-life stories are told using fictional devices and techniques. The various chapters go through the ranks of recent cases, whether tried or judicially archived, that have had significant media resonance.
Synopsis of crimesthe documentary series about crimes in Spain that is on Netflix
This series of real crimes examines real crimes that have occurred recently in Spain. Carles Porta, from the location of Catalunya Radio, adds a short presentation to each episode, which accompanies the chronicles of his voice-over throughout the audiovisual piece. In addition, it is not the “experts” who speak their view but the “protagonists,” either directly or indirectly, who narrate their experience of the events because they have experienced them or examined them.
Among the known events are Brito and Picatoste, the guard of Olot, the librarian Helena Jubany, or the murderer of Putxet, among others.
