Love this show
27 April 2015 | by lzkennedySee all my reviews

I stumbled upon this show on Netflix and ended up having a Rita marathon weekend. I'm not usually a fan of subtitles, but it was very easy to follow and ever so enjoyable. The writers have provided a rich story with a complex but powerful woman as the main character. There are so many wonderful story lines and characters. The casting is right on. The show is a little edgy for US standards, which is a plus for me. It deals with real topics and I feel does an outstanding job.I especially enjoyed learning more about Denmark, a little about the school system(I know it is TV, but still a glimpse) and being introduced to Denmark TV. This show has me searching for more Danish programs. I can't wait for season 3. Please hurry up Netflix.
