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 »

Surprisingly Satisfactory
4 December 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

As a Swede, growing up with Swedish TV, I am not easily impressed with anything Swedish. It always seemed too theatrical, with lines delivered as if from a stage, with voices and gestures that didn't fit the TV format.

There is still a tiny bit of that present here, but this series proves that we are on the right way, big time! The main character is played by Peter Eggers, who has great presence, reminding me of actors like Ralph Fiennes and Michael Fassbender, because of his looks and fine acting. The rest of the basic cast is very accomplished as well.

The show itself is a detective story set in 1790, with one case solved each episode, but there is also an underlying political drama, and a love story, that stretches over all the episodes. It made me think of the Murdoch Mysteries.

Meny prominent Swedish actors are guesting; I have to mention Thorsten Flinck and Jessica Zandén. Both gave vibrant and scene-stealing performances.

The visual production is top notch; exterior, interior, costume, hair - yep, it looks pretty damn good:) I was seduced, I hope you will be too!
