The best series i've ever seen!!!!
31 July 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This series is one of the biggest success in Swedish history. It's a great series in my opinion and i really love it. The photography in the series i mean really outstanding. The actors/ actresses they play very very well through the whole series and i dare to say that they have never played that well in any other series/ film in their whole career. The really do their best achievements ever in this series. Another good thing with the series is that it contains a lot of interesting and varying stories and you learn how a Doctor in the Swedish archipelago works. Sometimes it's too rather dramatic and they flies with an ambulance-helicopter sometimes. All these things make the series become so good and make this series be a classic series forever in the Swedish TV-history. So i can really recommend you to watch it if you haven't done it yet.
