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

Tedious and implausible
9 June 2012 | by paul2001sw-1See all my reviews

Drama often works by personalising issues; thus a crime drama needs its brilliant detective, uniquely able to see his way through a mystery. And hence, it's no surprise that programmes like 'Cracker' have used the notion of the criminal psychologist - a role whose real life value is marginal in most crimes - as a key protagonist - it's just so much more appealing than having a crime solved through the teamwork of the ordinary. Swedish drama 'Sebastian Bergman' also features a criminal psychologist as its central character, combined with the downbeat feel of other recent Scandanavian dramas ('Wallander', 'The Killing', 'The Bridge', etc.). Unfortuantly, it just isn't very good, combining ridiculous 'Silence of the Lambs'-style plotting with a moody pretentiousness that is mostly irritating. It feels neither like a thriller or real life (whereas the brilliant 'The Killing' felt like both), a beast as lumbering as its weary protagonist. Sadly proof that not everything out of the north is good.
