The critics never liked this series, however I loved it. I've seen it time and time again and the only thing, I was annoyed by is that all the Swedish parts were played by Danish actors - speaking Danish. This was changed in the re-release, so on the DVD-version the Swedish characters speak Swedish :o) Perhaps the series is not great art, but the action is quite funny and it stays true to the books on which it is based. The story is what it is, and one should not believe to much of it. It is more a story about Svend than Svend's story. However Svend Gønge was a real-life person from Skåne in Sweden. After the war he ended up as a major in the Danish army.
