A killer only known as "the Tourist" (Mark Swervey) is roaming the streets, usually picking up his victims on public transport stations (hence "the Tourist"). Detective Frost (Larry Laverty) is working on the case pretty much 24/7, much to the distress of his boss commissioner Grey (Deborah Funes) though - not so much because he hasn't come with anything tangible yet, but because she likes to ... well, fuck her staff - and Frost is a happily married man. Well, ok, happily married is a gross exaggeration, in fact his wife (Marie Madison) has long given up on him as he always favours his job over her and gotten herself a lover, Theodore (John J Thomassen) ... something Frost does his best to ignore because he loves her. She leaves him though for Theodore ... only thing is, she never arrives, she's picked up by the Tourist and violently slaughtered ...

For a while there, Frost is the chief suspect in his wife's murder, but nothing sticks, but he's drawn off the case, for even understandable reasons. But against his suggestion, Grey does not make his right-hand-man Gallagher (Rod Hermansen) his successor but detective Kelly (John Baran), one of her lovers ... but one who's a fish out of water regarding the case ...

Four years later: Frost is still of the force, but sees a therapist (Scott E. Jones) regularly. The Tourist has not killed again after the murder of Frost's wife ... well, at least not in this county. There were no new clues, too, at least none detective Kelly could figure - but then a murder happens that could fit the Tourist's profile, and since Kelly has not got the first clue, even the commissioner tells him to go to Frost for advice.

Funny thing then Frost doesn't believe it was the Tourist - but in his opinion a cop-killing hardly fitting the Tourist's profile was. And what about Frost's wife lover Theodore? ...

 

Wisp (well, at least Act 1 - the first five episodes) is the little series that gets it right: Basically it's a psycho thriller cut into slices, but each episode carries enough information and pushes the story forward enough to entertain the audience also in between cliffhangers, while the story is complex enough, it's also straight-forward enough for the subplots not constantly distracting from the main plot (quite the contrary, actually), it's got its fair share of suspense to keep the general audience and its fair share of meanness to keep the genre fan glued to the screen, and a nice ensemble cast and subtle directorial effort do their part as well to bring the story to life.

Very nice, really!
