Travis Fimmel’s Crime Mystery is the Australian history lesson you never knew you needed

but black snow also gives us a tangible sense of the islander community as a unique and complex part of Australia that many outside are likely to know little about. It’s up to the first-time cast to bring it to life, and a few wobbles aside, they do it brilliantly.

Leading the charge are Blackman-Corowa, whose emotionless performance oddly wins, and Jemmason Power, who plays the adult version of Isabel’s younger sister, Hazel. She is initially hostile to Cormack’s investigations before becoming his greatest asset. Unless she has something of her own to hide.

Cormack has his demons too. We first meet him in an alley outside a pub who pays someone to beat him up. Obviously he’s not just your average cop and fiddle – best known for his Ragnar Lothbrok in viking – leaves him brimming with fleeting ambiguity, righteously devoted one minute, on the brink of implosion the next.

The supporting actors are also great. Brooke Satchwell never fails to impress, although she doesn’t have enough here to work with. Alexander England has perfected the promising-boy-from-seed vibe, while Rob Carlton and Kim Gyngell – as farmer and local bull respectively – capture the ominous feeling that the country’s hospitality will turn to hostility in the blink of an eye could.

black snow is a trojan horse of a show. It’s an effective crime drama that can do just about anything you could wish for. But inside, a whole legion of more challenging ideas lurk.
