Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this wintry murder mystery based on a graphic novel involves grisly violence, including autopsy sequences, blood-spurting wounds, and more. There's also some adult material related to sexuality and drinking, but it's glossed over fairly swiftly in favor of murder and mayhem. Expect a good bit of strong language (including "f--k" and "s--t")

Sexual Content

Brief male nudity in a group of streakers; glimpses of pornography; lingering shots of the main female character getting ready for the shower.

Violence

Extensive grisly violence, including beatings, shootings, bludgeoning, stabbings, and more. Cut throats gush blood; a body falls from a great height. A neck is broken bare-handed; an ice axe is used as a weapon; a head is slammed into a mirror. Fingers are amputated on-screen after frostbite damages them beyond repair. Close-up images of surgical procedures (including autopsies) and forensic investigations.

Language

Frequent strong language throughout, including "f--k," "s--t," "hell," "bitch," "damn," "oh my God," "goddamn," and more.

Social Behavior

The lead character's trust issues raise the concept of whether being an authority figure is enough reason to inspire trust in others (the answer seems to be "no" -- "sometimes, a badge is just a badge," the main character notes while relating a tale of earlier betrayal by a fellow officer).

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink hard liquor; references to an unseen marijuana plant.
