Dokumentarudsendelser as It's worst
1 January 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This documentary is very hard to watch. Not only for the story of an evil man, but for the bad work behind the film.

The story has to be told, but not at this way.

Everything in this film is annoying. Not a single name on the interviewed persons. You have to guess who those people is.

When the letters from the daughter Elisabeth is spoken out loud, it is with the most annoying voice, like It's read out by a retarded person. Why? Why can't she sound like a normal person with knowledge?

And there is no in-dept description of the man what so ever.

Maybe some day, the story will be told in a good and understandable way, to enlighten us all. This day is not here yet.
