Another brilliant Scandinavian Serial Killing show
Finished watching the only season of this Danish TV serial which is being remade for US right now. Every episode is almost 1.5 hrs, characters are same but every episode comes up with a new serial killer to analysis and catch. A female lead detective pairs with a talented but problematic forensic psychiatrist to catch these killers. They all have their share of personal problems to handle. Katrine(Detective) has been abused as a child by her stepfather and Thomas(FP) always grasping to retain balance between his work or job that he desires and his family.
Now the stories. Every serial killer is different, everyone has their own way of thinking and different way of killing. Thomas analysis the methodology of the killer in his own way, links up the puzzles that help Katrine catch the killer. Some stories are brilliant, some are average, but overall there were lots of excitement and intelligent stuff. After watching so many hightech series some might seem quite amateurish but actually they are not. Ratings might not seem that much convincing but its not as bad as rating says.
There's one more thing. I know the Scandinavians were amongst the first to give women empowerment but three Scandinavian serial killing TV series I watched and all three of them has the female lead protagonist. I am not being misogynist or against women empowerment rather the opposite, but sometimes it feels a bit cliché. I love Scandinavian crime production and I can't but to be partial!
Overall my rating: 8/10
