The Woods isn't the best of Coben's Netflix shows, but it's pretty far from the worst.
The Woods is a Polish Netflix original series based on Coben's novel of the same name, which was published in 2007. The series premiered on Netflix in the summer of 2020, right at the beginning COVID-19 pandemic. Many Netflix viewers tuned in during that time, but The Woods is not one of the most popular of Coben's Netflix shows. That doesn't mean it's not good, but it's probably the one that fans haven't seen yet.
The Woods tells the story of a lawyer from Warsaw, Paweł Kopiński, played by Grzegorz Damięcki. He was present at a summer camp in the 1990s when several people were killed and others were taken. Pawel tries to connect the dots and solve the crime about 25 years later.
The Woods is one of the only dual timelines of Coben's Netflix shows. It makes it a little bit more confusing than some of the others, but it's still quite a solid mystery. Up next is Fool Me Once, the most recently released of Coben's Netflix shows.
