Big fan of Mikael- Gunvald
8 November 2019 | by braquecubismSee all my reviews

Watched S#1-3 a few years ago- and had to search for 4&5- so it's hard for me to evaluate the seasons- But I fell in love with Mikael (Persbrandt, Gunvald) as have many. Searched to find his films So anything I can see him in, I enjoy. From what I remember, it is a good detective show. I can't say how true to Swedish police it is. some of the personal stuff about Peter Head Detective, I could have seen less. He's gruff but fair. Peter and Mikael forge a relationship of subdued respect, and kind of a friendship. Gunvald keeps to himself, He is chivalrous and protecting of women. He seems to have a private life, at times. Somehow, this seems like Mikael (minus his untreated bi-polar) I don't say this often, I am a fan.
