Great plot, great acting, uneven directing
20 April 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This great miniseries is one of the most exciting Swedish dramas I've ever seen. Filled with emotion, action and suspense Medicinmannen gave me and my family many hours of great entertainment. The actors were all great and the story was super, but the only negative thing was that sometimes I got the impression that the directors were stressed and in a hurry. This is a great pity, but still Medicinmannen is one of the best Swedish drama series ever. Some of the scenes are very strong emotionally and may be potentially upsetting, but they deal with important questions and should be seen if possible. All in all TV4 showed great guts and spirit when they for once commissioned such a ambitious production.
