Well Done Nobel
16 December 2016 | by (Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Nobel is a stunning portrayal of the complexities of the war in Afghanistan and points to why after more than a decade of fighting this war is still ongoing with no end in sight.

The story evolves around an elite special forces group from Norway whose leader is ordered to complete a mission while on leave after returning home.

The characters are strong and believable and will draw you into their lives as their world teeters on collapse when the competing sides of politics of peace and business collide.

It demonstrates real world politics and how a peace nation like Norway and not unlike Canada and other nations have had to not only be peace keepers but peace makers and more. One difference is that Norway is also about to award the Nobel Peace Prize with all the political intrigue that it involves.

Nobel was brilliantly shot and this Canadian was drawn into the story and look forward to a second season. Again well done.
