Detective Tale with a Social Conscience
1 August 2016 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

This 2007 series of the detective drama has been more serious in terms of content than its predecessors. While the regular group of detectives are still there, dedicated to solving crimes at all costs, the cases they are dealing with are far nastier.

"The Silent Scream" begins with two teenagers (Marall Nasiri, Karin Bogaeus) who are crushed to death on a railway-line by an express train. The driver is in no way to blame; either the victims were drugged or they committed suicide. This shocking incident paves the way for an intricate tale of feckless mothers, dominant fathers, and child abuse; no one, it seems, is immune from exploitation. Sometimes we long for Gunvald (Mikael Persbrandt) to take the most elemental form of revenge on the suspects by giving them a good hiding; but of course, this is not really ethical.

Harald Hamrell's production creates a dystopian world of shadows, threatening parkland, and tall, anonymous-looking apartment-blocks where anything, it seems, can happen. No one seems especially interested in their fellow human beings, except for the purposes of exploitation. The ending, when it comes, is to be expected; but we understand that nothing else could really happen in this kind of environment.

There is a subplot of sorts, as Beck (Peter Haber) tries to deal with persistent toothache, but this is little more than a minor diversion in a film noir-esque episode.
