The New York Times

Mystery Road is frequently labeled outback noir, but with its vistas, its sweaty, buggy ambience and its frontier righteousness, it's really a hard-boiled neo-western, and Swan is its roving Paladin.

There are shock twists, car chases and confrontations with villains. The action scenes have a real kick to them – but it’s the depth and scope of the script that keeps you thinking long after the credits roll.

Sydney Morning Herald

This magnificent version of the Wild West returns for a second season, as exotic and distinctive as ever... There’s a gruesome death before the opening credits, the mordant humour that enlivened season one, and the same unique insights into the complexities of Indigenous culture and black/white relations.
