Five years after a hostage crisis leads to the accidental death of four teens, a psychotic killer begins leaving the elaborately tortured corpses of people connected to the incident, sending epitaphs to authorities in advance. A former cop and female shrink team up to solve each puzzle in this gripping, gruesome HBO series, artfully shot in Argentina. Though proceedings go wildly over the top in later chapters of Epitafios: The Complete First Season, the plot is dense, complicated, and better than emery boards for wearing down one’s nails. EXTRAS A short making-of.
