This is a great serie.It contains as always when it comes to Jan Guillou and Leif GW Persson, a lot of criticism for the swedish society,politicians and especially SÄPO (swedish security police).
Its funny,violent and realistic.Well acted and directed and the story is wellwritten.For those who have read some of Jan Guillous and Leif GW Perssons books some names can be recognized.Erik Ponti (Jan Guillous alter ego)is the journalist from Coq Rouge,Bo Jarnebring is the cop from Leif GW Perssons coptrilogy and some of the politicians are not so well camouflaged politicians from real life.I believe that Ny Demokrati´s (New Democracy) Ian Wachtmeister and Bert Karlsson wasnt very happy when they saw Jan Guillous and Leif GW Perssons caricatures of them on the screen.
Well worth watching!
