Touching, funny, great...
1 August 2000 | by ost-4See all my reviews

This must be one of the best Tv-series ever in Sweden. It perfectly catches the spirit of Sweden while it also features great personal portraits. The acting is supreme aswell as the directing, filming and writing.

The story is really an update of the classic romantic 'triangle' aswell as it is a roadmovie...interesting mixture? You bet!
