Goofs

Peter Eggers (Johan Gustav Dåådh) and Joel Spira (Simon Freund) both sport a highly anachronistic 3-day stubble throughout, whilst the others are thoroughly shaved. They maintain this look, every day even if it would have been hard to look so unkempt, as they're beards do not grow. Some other things as depicting most poor people as dirty even at nighttime is absolutely wrong. Most people bathed weekly, and all washed daily. People in dirty lines of work would bathe daily after work. See more »

Okay, but not among the best Swedish crime stories
4 July 2014 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Although the events happening in the end of 18th century are distinctive and unconventional - with good overview of life in Eastern Sweden then - most of the scripts (10 episodes, in a logical sequence, but still 10 different crimes) are rather tedious, and due to the natural lack of novel techniques and devices, attentiveness and "wild guesses" are the main successes in solving crimes. In some cases, you can guess the offender easily, and the inclusion of outsiders / supporting characters does not provide any additional value. Thus, all the episodes could have been shorter, max 45 minutes instead of almost an 1 hour.

As for acting, I found it good that different actors as usual were employed, but - apart from Linda Zilliacus as Magdalena Wahlstedt - there were no strong performances, no character actors as e.g. Peter Stormare, Mikael Persbrandt, or Rolf Lassgaard. But still, for a change, Anno 1790 can be regarded as a different approach, and there are lots of Becks and Wallanders anyway already :)
