Goofs

F21 in Lulea didn't have any Viggen (AJ37, JA37, J37 or A37) until 1979. At 1972 they still used the airplane Draken (J35). Second, the plane that gets blown up in the beginning of the film is a SK37 Viggen, its a double seated airplane for educational use. They have tried to mask it as an ordinary Viggen, but failed. There is a bump after the flight deck that is not on combat models See more »

User Reviews

 
Great main character. Average mysteries.
17 January 2014 | by (Seattle, US) – See all my reviews

This Swedish television series captures the work and personal life of Annika Bengtzon, a tenacious journalist who relentlessly strives to unveil the truth and identities of criminals. She is also a doting, young mother and her conviction to her work often conflicts with her lion-hearted longing to be a good mother and supportive spouse/lover. The quick-paced show is artfully done (both visually and auditorily) and gives the viewer a sense that time is of the essence and moreover, it gives Annika's life a sense of edginess, fragility and most importantly, freedom, as she plunges headlong into tracking down criminals without thinking twice about the consequences. Annika is beautiful by American standards and average by Swedish standards. But she is not portrayed in any glossy fashion - she wears dark eyeliner, sloppy t-shirts and has pronounced bags under her eyes. The show does an excellent job at portraying a passionate, hard-working woman's struggles and it does an average job in creating compelling mysteries. The mysteries are somewhat formulaic, which is why we love them. However, a smart audience will eventually want to see more grit and complexity in its criminals. - Looking forward to Season 2.
