When I started to watch this series I was skeptical. Finnish crime drama, how could that work. Well it did, big time. First of all, the characters are truly unique. Raid, Hopo, Sanna, truck driver, porn salesman, "perse-arska"... wow! And you gotta love the lieutenant Jansson's sarcastic one-liners. Brilliant! Also, the plot is interesting enough to keep you awake. It is also nice to see Hopo's and Sanna's relationship to evolve. The neighborhood's maradona was also a funny figure. There is no doubt that Raid is the best finnish crime drama ever. Particularly, because it contains enough finnish humour to keep us all at our seats. :-)
