Storyline

Jenny Bengtsson is a teacher living in Kalmar, Sweden, struggling to stay afloat during her divorce. Her best friend, Doctor Cecilia Stensson, has financial problems after failed investments in the stock market. Every day they're forced to take crap from students, parents, patients and bosses who all expect them to give more than they're able to. They're tired of women always being the ones stuck between family and career and constantly having to struggle to make ends meet. When they both realize that the future is anything other than bright, they decide to do something drastic, insane actually - to rob the main branch of the Stockholm Bank. The Simple Heist tells the story that leads up to the crazy decision to rob a bank, the preparations, the heist itself and the aftermath: does the money solve all their problems or do they just get new ones? How are they supposed to drive a getaway car with a drunk teenager in the backseat? What's the best way to commit breaking-and-entering when ... Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

AKA "A very Scandi scandal" in the UK - a jolly romp
5 October 2020 | by BaronVonKolischSee all my reviews

Fun and exciting all the way, it will keep your attention through both seasons.

UK/US comedies tend to skip any semblance of story and focus entirely on the slapstick elements, using everyday life issues as a backdrop. Here however, the humour is story-driven ... not unlike Seaside Hotel and to an extent, New Nurses, although they are perhaps more subtle in their comic content.

The other recipe for success is the great chemistry and timing that exists between the two main characters, and also the suspenseful way in which each of their capers runs close to calamity, at every turn. 7.6/10
