The best Estonian series
5 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

"Ohtlik Lend" is a series that many have waited for. It's a perfect crime series in my opinion, it's not too complicated but story lines are very well made.

The key character is Andres Västrik who's often called "Vistrik" which means a pimple in Estonian. He's anything but a stereotypical cop. He doesn't often care about other people opinions and is who he is. He can be described as a bully and often being mean to other people. Despite being an important investigator he remains human, for example he drinks beer and sometimes gets really drunk. When driving alone he often listens to thrash metal. He has an ex-wife called Katrin but who's always called Kats. He also has a teenage daughter with Katrin. Even though Andres isn't the most intelligent and is a politically incorrect cop he still does a good job as an investigator. He's able to make connections needed when investigating a crime. Andres often uses some hilarious phrases.

The other important character is Andres's partner Rita. She's a complete opposite to Andres. She's an intelligent and way more polite than Andres. She's able to remain calmer than Andres although she could often get really mad at him. Also she's rather moody and not as cold as Andres. She often comes up with many good ideas and she's a needed part for solving the cases.. She also can stand up for herself and use a gun like an old hunter.

The story lines are nearly perfect. Some serious problems over the whole world are involved and these are mixed with an Estonian popular culture. Starting from a simple murders which are caused by relationship problems ending up with an international crime. Ohtlik Lend deflects perfectly everything what Estonia has to offer. Deep forest, small villages, a life in a small island or a big city life in Tallinn, you name it. Also there were some historical cases featured in the series. Cases which need to be solved aren't too complicated but still rather unpredictable and enjoyable.

But it has some of the most common bad sides as well. First of all, which is no one's fault, is the fact that again the same actors were brought in. That's because of having 1,3 million people living in Estonia. A guy who's a good one in other series is a bad one here and so on. This was the main reason why the series was canceled - all the actors had already been acting in the series. And the end of the series... well at least in my opinion should have been different. In the final episode there was shown how Andres and Rita both found each other fell in love.

Despite all that it's still one of the best crime series ever and the best series at all ever made in Estonia. It's original and even a littlebit national as I described before, not like "Kelgukoerad" which is a bad copy of CSI. At least for all the Estonians who haven't seen it yet I'd recommend it. And why not for Finnish people as well. Other nations probably wouldn't understand a word. Most episodes can be found at ETV archive.
