Astonishingly good
27 June 2001 | by ChrisHawk78See all my reviews

First of all. I do not like Peter Haber as Beck. That does not mean, that I do not appreciate him as an actor but simply because I consider him unfitting for the role. The first series, of which Roseanna is a part, is perhaps not as dramatic as the second one but it has Gösta Ekmann as Beck and Rolf Lassgard as Larsson. Two brilliant actors who bring the characters from the books to life in an astonishing way. Even if the plot is transported from the 50's to the 1993 it still has the right feel about it. Shot on location in Motala (A Swedish smalltown on the lake Vättern) it has a pleasant atmosphere about it. And as I already pointed out: It is not quite as dramatic as the second series and it certainly does not need it. The book were meant as crime novels and not action thrillers - so why force them into the latter? * * * * * * * * out of * * * * * * * * * *
