REVIEW ON NETFLIX’S WHITE LINES: A PERFECTLY IMPERFECT MURDER MYSTERY
Here’s what we think about the new trending series on Netflix
When it comes to keeping people entertained, Netflix is surely leading the race. After the immense success of Extraction, the streamer has come up with something just as good, or probably better. We are talking about White Lines, a perfectly imperfect murder mystery that will keep you hooked from the first episode.

Warning: Spoliers ahead
White Lines revolves around Zoe Collins Walker who arrives and Ibiza to find out who murdered her brother Axel, 20 years back. Then we see many Ibiza locals like Axel’s mate Marcus, the local power family, the Calafats and their head of security Boxer. Things start to go a bit weird when Zoe has an affair with Boxer, the Calafats have many horrible family sessions, and people do a whole lot of partying (because hey, it’s Ibiza).
After several hours of this, the White Lines series, gets back to the business of finding out who murdered Alex Collins. In the last few episodes, it is revealed that Axel was a horrible person as he cheated on his girlfriend with her mother and humiliated her brother. He also toyed with David’s heart, belittled Marcus and started a fight club. In the end, he becomes a self-destructive and obnoxious party boy who cares for no one.
As White Lines progresses, we also find out that Anna is quite horrible as well. Her wish for a lavish house led Marcus into financial trouble. She lets Zoe’s 14-year-old daughter have an all-night rager and afterparty. She also cheated on Marcus on their wedding night with Axel. So, we are really not surprised when she turns out to be the killer.
Though the story is quite predictable and the murder mystery often takes a backseat, White Lines is in the top 10 here in Oz primarily due to the original and intriguing way of telling a story. Sequences are not shown completely in White Lines, and new information is shared in bits and pieces which keeps us hooked.
