What a ride this show is! All the characters are perfectly cast and presented. Rita is obnoxious and she certainly must give off a whiff with all that smoking, but you definitely want her on your side, because really she is an example of a very decent human being. Hjordis is the most wonderfully vulnerable yet amazingly strong person you could wish to meet and the fact that she and Uffe can converse fluently in Elvish is a stroke of genius. This series has made me gasp in horror, giggle hysterically, cry in anger and sadness, laugh out loud at some of the antics, repulsed me in some scenes and warmed my heart in others. It is so well rounded and although the last episode is not a cliffhanger and could be a suitable end I do hope there will be more. Please let there be more....
