A fifth followed: "I love when a limited series wraps everything up with a satisfying ending. This one is perfect #DearChildNetflix."

Speaking with Netflix's Die Woche newspaper, Julian Porksen, the co-writer and co-director 

explained: "These are all damaged characters: people who are severely scarred by a crime and deal with it very differently.

"The perpetrator is often the focus of such series and is glorified as a mysterious, dark force. That's not the case with us.

"And there is a main character who is extraordinary in every way. A girl who has a special view of the world, a special way of speaking, thinking and experiencing."
