Storyline

Detective Inspector Eva Thörnblad (Moa Gammel) returns to Silver Height seven years after her daughter Josefine disappeared by a lake in the woods . The body was never found and the girl was believed to have drowned. Now a boy has vanished without a trace and Thörnblad wants to find out if there is a link to her daughter's disappearance. At the same time , she will take care of the legacy of her father, the great entrepreneur Johan Thörnblad, who build an empire of timber and timber processing on the large forest owned by his ancestors. As the plot deepens more children are kidnapped and what initially seems like a police drama takes a more sinister and stranger twist with each episode.

Promising benchmark floating into over-sophisticated ending
28 February 2016 | by Bene CumbSee all my reviews

As I am fond of Scandinavian suspense thrillers, I try to watch them as much as possible, preferably in sequence. True, as the "aces are high", it is natural that in a search of a new angle or background, the result can be less interesting to certain viewers.

I, for example, have to admit that I am not much into fabulous creatures or supernatural forces penetrating into "trivial" human world, so the last episodes did not bear the same value for me as primary events and tensions, but luckily there was no "deus ex machina" or superhero present, and gradually appearing non-real elements did not make me cancel the watching. At times, tense just faded away and made me ponder that less duration or number of episodes could have been becoming.

Unlike in most of Swedish series with alternating actors-actresses, almost all performers here were unknown to me (apart from Ann Petrén), but I cannot say I was particularly impressed by anyone whose career should be followed in the future. So, a decent series, but similar with the ones like Maria Wern and Arne Dahl rather than with Bron/Broen or Millennium. For those, however, fond of additional mysticism and gloomy mood, Jordskott can be recommended with bigger enthusiasm.
