Storyline

In two new Nordic Noir thrillers, Rolf Laasgaard, one of Scandinavia's most popular actors (Wallander, False Trail), assumes a powerful new role as Police profiler Sebastian Bergman. Bergman is strong-minded, politically incorrect, abrasive and grief-stricken, since he has yet to come to terms with the loss of both his wife and daughter in the 2004 Thailand tsunami. In the first of the two thrillers, from the creators of the original Wallander TV films, he helps police in his home town solve the murder of a 15-year-old boy who had an affair with one of his teachers. In the second, he attempts to catch a serial killer who seems to be modelling his attacks on those of a jailed killer whom Bergman brought behind bars himself... Written by foxmulder-605-330197

Certainly very much better than some people suggest
25 January 2016 | by perkypopsSee all my reviews

This set of two feature length stories feature the boorish profiler / detective / author "Sebastian Bergman" as he assists police with two murder investigations. The title character's personality is onion peeled away across the two episodes, often painfully and clumsily revealed as a rather unlikeable womanising man, who has suffered serious trauma in his life. But this unlikeable character is able to put complex pieces together in a murder investigation by often sensing that something that appears to fit doesn't fit at all.

Because of the high quality of acting, script, cinematography, and sound, there is atmosphere in abundance, and the unpleasantness of the crimes doesn't so much make you squirm and look away as make you an observer trying to understand what is going on in the characters' minds.

I found the two episodes compelling watching and I am happy to be in a minority of recommending them. As ever there are unexplained pieces or unanswered questions at the end but I assume they are answered in Series 2 which I have not seen released in the UK.
