Not among the finest, but definitely above average
Scandinavian (Swedish and Danish, above all) crime series are a sign of quality, but when you have Wallander, Millennium, and Bron/Broen, it is extremely difficult to create something more sophisticated and attractive. Den fördömde does not measure up to the ones mentioned (for various reasons, e.g. tardy pace, uneven characters and performances, over-scrutinised solutions, lengthy references to the past), but for those fond of Swedish places, approaches, topics, landscape, etc., it is still another good experience. And Rolf Lassgård is really great, however, due to his person, there is no uniform team, he outperforms all other actors and is involuntarily brought to the front even when it is meaningless arising from the logic of events. But, with only 4 episodes made, it is not an oppressive watching, just do not have too high hopes.
