Classic suspense-thriller
22 March 2002 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

"Rød snø" (Red Snow) was, and still is, one of the greatest mini-series ever written and produced for Norwegian and Swedish television (a co-production between the two countries).

Set at a remote boarding-house in neutral Sweden during World War II, the story includes spies, murder, comedy and a charming love story of sorts between the Norwegian refugee Anne (a young and beautiful Kjersti Holmen) and Evert, the unfortunate son of the house - the latter portrayed with great comedic flair by the superb Tomas Von Brömssen.

With elements of an Agatha Christie-mystery (including a grand finale on a train) "Rød snø" made an impact on just about anyone who was old enough to remember 1985 (and I was only 9 at the time). For norwegians it also included the breakthrough-performances of Kjersti Holmen and Sven Nordin, who would become two of the nations most popular actors.

Even when seen today "Rød snø" still offers great entertainment with some good scares along the way, and who can forget that beautiful theme by Egil Monn-Iversen?

Note: after the success of "Rød snø" Norwegian viewers demanded a re-teaming of Kjersti Holmen and Tomas Von Brömssen, and in 1989 they got their wish when they both starred as a couple in the suspenseful mini-series "Marerittet" (The Nightmare).
