Okay, but still not up to Wallander or Falk, for example
2 July 2013 | by Bene CumbSee all my reviews

Having seen all the films in chronological order, it is here becoming to assess the whole series (10 episodes).

After seeing the first 2 episodes, I was ambivalent toward them: well, I had my pleasant joy of recognition due to actors from my country (although playing negative characters), most members of the special team seemed uninviting to me (compared to e.g. Wallander or Ørnen series), and the course of events was somewhat dazed and with scenes not providing additional value to the film. Nevertheless, I decided to continue watching and the following ones got more onto the track. Of course, there are topics characteristic to Swedish contemporary film-making such as cross-border crime, immigrant issues and child molestation, but their angle of depiction was not annoying.

As for cast, it was pleasant that local actors speaking local languages were used when events took place in a foreign country; most inviting main actors to me were Matias Varela as Jorge Chaves and Niklas Åkerfelt as Arto Söderstedt.

I would collate Arne Dahl series with Anna Pihl series: both not bad, but not in my Top10 Scandinavian crime series list.
