While Robert Gustafsson (playing Nisse) is generally considered the greatest Sweden has to offer in terms of comedy, he is here overshadowed by Lasse Brandeby (Rolf). The greedy, overconfident pompous tram driver that Lasse plays seems to be a perfect fit for him. While he is certainly the highlight of the show, the female characters fall short, they neither add any comedy to the show nor any acting to take note of. One exception to this is Mi Ridell who arrives later in the series and gives us the kind of female character we were longing for.
Lars Brandeby has been in the media industry for a long time but this is definitely his most entertaining legacy and thus far the only Swedish sitcom that can match the international ones.
