Unfortunately for me this show delivered characters that seemed to have very little emotion or energy. After watching all the episodes I actually read somewhere, that the script was British and that it was modified to better suit "the Finnish way of communication and self expression" which was considered to be more low-key. I cannot see why this would have been necessary, and cannot be happy with the result. They could have left a pulse at least...
There are some great supporting roles and actors such as Elias Gould and Elias Salonen, who bring the show to life. I was more interested in them, than in the "main family". The story itself is great, I liked the game with timelines and it did kind of pick up towards the end.
