Trivia

Episode 1, Season 1: During the scene where the character of the journalist Daniel is introduced, a colleague tells him he downloaded "Elephants in the Desert" in an attempt to befriend Daniel. Elephants in the Desert is not a song, nor is it an album or band. It is a reference to a secretly planned and unannounced gig performed by Radiohead in a small Swedish venue. Radiohead billed themselves as "Elephants in the Desert" for the show. See more »

Great series
8 January 2012 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

I guess reviewer Smockan didn't notice that Sofia Helins odd character had Aspergers Disorder which results in a very asocial behaviour. She don't know how to socialize or communicate in a normal fashion. She knows nothing about being diplomatic or "holding back". She's just barging in like a bulldozer.

I've seen the first 9 episodes and was amazed by the exciting storyline, the twists and Kim Bodnias acting. Sofia Helins performance isn't top notch but the character is so amusing and hilarious so you cant do nothing but love her. as long as you don't have to meet her in real life. =)

Those of you out there who just watched one episode and thought "this is crap. Cant stand watching this piece of *beeep*. Let's watch Wrestling instead" just don't know what you missed. This is a great crime series and it shows that Sweden and Denmark should co op more often when it comes to made for TV-drama.
