The acting in all 3 series was very good.
Just wish there was a series 4 so that the loose ends could be tied up.
Especially the relationship with her father & her 'love'.
Also that the bad guys could get sorted once & for all.

Rated 9/10. All-in-all, a pretty good series. Good plotline and acting.

At this point, this series has not be renewed for #4. See this link:

the plot revolves around sports and game fixing and drugs, which doesn’t really interest me. I really enjoyed seasons 1 and 2, hope there will be a season 4.

Sabotage, betrayal, dirty dealing, and lust for power take precedence over justice this season. Janet is saddled once again with a young know-it-all who nearly brings ruin to the team, and her former enemies will stop at nothing to see her brought low. Very tense. Wonderful "artsy shots." Plenty of twists and turns.

A good character representation of talent, generosity and impossibly irritating all in one.

3rd series continued to be addictive because of the fast paced story and the fine acting.
Janet’s father is a pain but one can see why she is so driven.
Wish there were a Season 4. Perhaps Janet could have met someone who could have broken her defenses down.

Series 3 is not as compelling as the 2 previous, but still decent story, complimentary characters, and some mystery add up to a fine show. Marta Dusseldorp steals most every scene, of course. Plus, we have the added family drama of her long estranged father showing up to a not necessarily welcome reunion. Spoiler alert: After 7 episodes figuring out the villian, the final one is a distinct disappointment.
