A good premise destroyed by ridiculous hand-held photography, laughable editing and terrible audio
25 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Blind gudinne" (Blind Goddess - referring to the goddess of justice) was the crime show that should have been great, but ended up to hip for it's own good. Based on a novel by Anne Holt, one of Norway's most popular authors, the show had the same gritty look as a Lars Von Trier movie and the cinematography of a dogma-film. Despite a good story, the show suffered from an almost parody-like use of hand-held shots, not to mention hyperactive over-the-top editing, and to top it all of: an audio problem! Every TV-viewer thought there was something wrong with their set as the dialogue was down-right incomprehensible. How this was possible with the biggest anticipated cop-show in Norway will remain one of the great mysteries of TV-history.

And to think it had everything going for it, including some of the finest actors in the country. But you know you're in trouble when you can't even make out what the actors are saying, and the cinematography and editing send you screaming for seasickness-pills! Director Carl Jørgen Kiønig had a background in theatre and had NO business directing a big show like this! Also, when the look of the show was accused of being just a bad copy of "NYPD Blue" and Von Trier's "The Kingdom" he claimed he hadn't even seen the shows in question. I believe the technical term for this is "liar, liar pants on fire!"

Should they ever decide to do a re-run, I hope they remember subtitles.

The show was followed by a feature film, "Salige er de som tørster", a big improvement on "Blind gudinne".
