User Reviews

 
Not for people outside of Scandinavia.
3 April 2020 | by KalleFaanSee all my reviews

My favorite Swedish actor as the lead and he's just as obnoxious as Rainn Wilson was in the US show. In fact, I think that Bergqvist is the only actor that can really do the Bäckström portrayed in the books. I don't think this show will translate very well to the US audience, though. Violent crime in Sweden is very rare compared to the US and gun-related murders even more so. In 2018 only 43 murders of 118 in total were gun related. Suicide using a gun 2018 was 213. (Just so you all know one fact stated in the first episode). A lot, and I mean A LOT, of other things will not hit the spot outside of Northern culture and lore. Swedes vs Fins. The Mumin Trolls. Old tales of damned islands and cliffs. And so on...
