Geir goes to Glaceland... almost
4 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Frank and Sigrid go to the hospital Frank is somewhat perturbed to find that the man he thought was the doctor is actually the midwife who will be looking after Sigrid; he asks a doctor about getting a female midwife but that doesn't go well... a few days later they get a letter saying that they have been allocated a spot at another hospital in another town. Frank is determined to get switched back but it doesn't look possible... until another father-to-be asks for an invite to his poker night. Meanwhile police officer Geir 'Elvis' Tvedt finds himself suspended after his actions in the previous episode; it works out for the best though as his colleagues have a whip round to send him to Graceland then a joke on the plane leads to him learning something quite unexpected about Frank.

This was another enjoyable episode even if Frank's actions are somewhat predictable by now; viewers will have learnt by now that he will inevitably try to solve his problems through coercion or violence; that doesn't spoil the show though as Steve Van Zandt's performance is great as this less than subtle character. Geir's side story was more entertaining though as it did have some surprises... it was no surprise that he mistook a Sikh for a terrorist but it was a nice twist that they ended up drinking together rather than him trying to arrest the innocent man. Another highlight of Geir's story was finally getting to see how 'good' his Elvis impression is!
