Rather good, but mostly for female viewers, evidently
4 August 2014 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Denmark is a country/society well known for women with strong character and goals, women who do not lose heart because of setbacks. They are usually engaged at politics, law machinery, or journalism - as Dicte Svendsen in Aarhus, in the 2nd largest city. There is different kind of crime out there, but as there is more focus on women characters, the crimes are related to adultery, children, health, etc., i.e. "softer" topics. The course of action is quite smooth though, and leading actors like Iben Hjejle as Dicte and Lars Brygmann as John Wagner (I have discovered his talent and nicety rather recently) provide additional value to the series of 10 episodes (you better watch them in succession, flashbacks can be confusing). Moreover, there is a catchy supporting cast, particularly Dar Salim as Bo Skytte and Thue Ersted Rasmussen as Peter Boutrup; the ladies performing Dicte's best friends tend to remain in the shadow of Hjejle. Another "underplot" is provided by nice panorama of Aarhus and surroundings, making me feel like to visit the place again (after ca 20 years).

Well, Dicte is no Bro/Broen or Forbrydelsen, but in line with Anna Pihl, for example. Anyway, admirers of Hjejle and Brygmann will not be disappointed.
