The Olsson family move into a castle that turns out to be haunted. The kids, with their dim parents oblivious to all the strange things that are happening, are caught in the middle of a big mystery in the centuries old castle.
This is a cool classic TV show and one that could only have been made in Sweden. I'm sure it must have been a success, at least in its native country.
One particularity about this TV series is that most episodes have a somewhat poor start, but then they get better. Each episode is considerably different from each other, so at times this seems like different TV shows with the same artists. To me, that only makes it all the more interesting.
The lead character is Mats, a blonde young boy with silk hair. Harald Hamrell was always terrific as Mats.
Being something made in Scandinavia, obviously that the cinematography is one solid attribute. As a TV show, it is usually fun, enjoyable and has both elements of adventure and comedy that combine quite well.
