A modern take of the classic Norwegian movie where our main characters meet unforeseen troubles and bureaucracy when they refurbish an inherited house, to get away from a mad mother. A hopeless and hilarious meet with the system.

Well done Sky Arts for showing this brilliant TV series in the UK. It has got "cult following " written all over it but I am convinced that given a wider audience ,it would do a "Fawlty Towers" or "The Office " and become a big hit on mainstream television , The mixture of odd ball characters ,good scripts and fine acting has got me completely hooked . I am currently lapping up series two and note that there others to follow .I really cannot wait to see those future series and see how Dag,Eva,Malin and the other brilliant characters handle that damned puzzling ball of wool called life !! Scandinavia really has cornered the market for quality TV drama in recent years with series like "The Killing","Borgen",The Bridge ",and "The Legecy" gaining much respect -"Dag" certainly deserves to be in that superior company .
