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 »

Gritty, believable characters - real life problems
5 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a woman, it's especially fun to watch this program. Annika is so fearless and yet so believable a character. There's a twist to the usual family dynamic in that Annika is the more workaholic and absent parent and her poor, long-suffering (and extremely hot) husband is often stuck home with the kids, or lying languidly shirtless in bed waiting for her just as she has to go out and investigate a tip.

All of the acting is wonderful and the direction very natural. One gets completely sucked into the plot and the pathos. You see how Annika steels herself from being impacted from most of it, and yet some cases really get to her. The Kvallpresse newsroom has its amusing cast of characters, from the tubby, barking and be-jowled news chief, to the lovable and mannish old socialist Berit, to the smarmy young toady Patrik.

Some of the crimes are pretty grisly so this series is not suitable for children. I've read reviews elsewhere in which men complain about having to hear about Annika's family life (also with Irene Huss, another Swedish crime solver I love) so this may be more something women and those interested in women's lives would enjoy.
