Annika review

10 April 2011 10:54 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Whether it's everyone and your Gran telling you to read Steig Larsson, or critics hailing an obscure Danish drama on BBC4 as the best thing since The Wire, it's clear we're basking in a golden age of Scandinavian fiction (although that's probably not the best cliché for a region often lacking in sunlight).

Inevitably, this successful invasion by our Viking cousins has been followed- by a slew of English-language adaptations (tagline: "For when you're too lazy, or stupid, to read subtitles."). Amongst others, we've had Kenneth Branagh busting chops as Wallander, a remake of The Killing screened recently on cable channel AMC in the Us, and David Fincher's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will be with us by the end of the year.

All of which, I'm sure, contributed to the decision to re-release this 1984 television relic. But it would be a mistake to lump Annika in with that current trend. »
