Storyline

The series follows young reporter Bjarne Madsen in Copenhagen in 1949, a time marked by the aftermath of World War II. Madsen is inexperienced, but enthusiastic; when he gets a hunch of a crime syndicate of black market trade he hunts the story head-first, much to the discomfort of his more conservative newspaper colleagues. However, as Madsen uncovers new elements of the story an older colleague catches interest, and together they venture into the dark side of the big city. Meanwhile, Bjarne's brother returns from America with new ideas of jazz and big money, and they are both drawn to the beauty and talents of young diva Gordan. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Distinctive and intense, with great supporting performances also
11 August 2014 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Scandinavia, particularly Denmark and Sweden are famous for their thrilling crime series, and as an admirer, I try to watch as many as possible. I had not heard of Edderkoppen before - apparently due to the distribution year - but several Danish actors I like have the series included in their filmography. And yes, lots of fine Danish actors active in the 21st century perform there, making even smaller roles memorable, for example Lars Mikkelsen, Lars Bryggmann, Bent Mejding, Lars Bom, Bjarne Henriksen, Stine Stengade... As for Jakob Cedergren as the leading character Bjarne Madsen, he is good too, although I am would not place him among the TOP10 - or I have not seen enough films with his presence.

The plot - based on real events - is also intense and wittily created, there are not too many films depicting post-WWII living, and from historical perspective, it does not easily become timeworn. Cinematography has skilfully exploited the era's larger mysticism and ambiguity, nevertheless, one can ponder on and over enduring issues and values such as loyalty, family ties, media's role, illusions vs. reality and others. The ending could have been more sophisticated, but it does not diminish the overall value.

Of course, Denmark is far another society than in the 1940ies, but thanks to well-tailored creation, Edderkoppen is pleasant to follow, and its 6 episodes is just right, not protracted. Strong 8 points from me.
