Netflix recent acquisition Good morning Veronica (Bom Dia, Verônica) is a slow-paced gritty thriller. The series is a Brazilian thriller. The series has eight episodes with a runtime of 45mins per episode. The series explains about domestic abuse against women.


The the premise of the script starts with Verônica (Tainá Müller), prime centrifugal force of the series as a clerk of the Civil Police of São Paulo, who, when witnessing a suicide of a girl Marta who came to complain  about her abuse in the  police station, finds herself obstinate to do justice giving voice to women victims of physical abuse and psychological problems within their abusive relationships.


The series eventually travels between two parallel cases, one with the Veronica (Tainá Müller) and the other; a couple where the husband (Du Moscovis) is military police holds dark secrets and a suffocating grip over wife Janete (Camila Morgado) life and well-being. Both the cases overlap which tells the remaining in eight episodes with countless methods of violence against women.


The characterization was very well made but unfortunately, it gets diminished when the thrilling first half went turned down to a lengthy drama made the characterization weak especially the characterization of Veronica who lost her control with the climax. The soundtrack is excellent, the heart rate is high, the main trio is great and the reflections are worth hours and hours of psychoanalysis. 

Overall, Good morning Veronica is a series that satisfies, as much as police suspense, psychological terror. It is worth watching but the ending drags down from being a better show which is bad. The series also shows an example of how a perfect disguise can hide a very ugly and dark truth.
