Main story is OK, but I love the details
8 December 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First of all, everybody should no that am usually very critic of Swedish movie and series production (I generally thought like danish more) so it's absolutely not because of that, that i like this series. Specially I've been critical about the acting. And this is absolutely the opposite in this case. At first I didn't really understand Sofia Helins act, but as soon as I realized she is acting an person living with the diagnosis of "asperger, autism spectrum" it all changed for me. Her acting is actually genius, and if someone don't understand that, u should find out more about that condition because her acting is the opposite of what some other reviewers her call bad. I also liked the acting and the dept of the Kim Bodnia character which was combined of a good cop, trying to be a nice guy privately, which could work out a bit better.

The story took a few nice turns, but sometimes it felt like to many.
