If you're hoping for quality like "The Bridge"....pass it by
I really can't understand what all the hype is about this series.
It has, unfortunately, an 'amateurish' feel about it....by some of the actors and the shaky hand-held style of camera work is often overdone.
The story itself is well written and based on real events but it has the feel of an American-made movie of the 90's....a little 'cartoonish' and unreal.
I had a lot of trouble staying for the 6 episodes and while it did get slightly better as it went on, it was NOT up to the best that has come out of Denmark.
I downloaded this and will DEFINITELY not be keeping my copy...there are FAR better series out there.
Maybe I was hoping for "The Bridge" or "The Killing" or a number of VERY good series out of Scandinavia......I was to be disappointed.
