Peter cannot prevent his brother from committing suicide, shattering the lives of Peter's sister-in-law Eva and 16-year-old nephew Andreas.

User Reviews

More than okay political thriller, but not among Scandinavian´s best
15 May 2019 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

As Norway is considered as one of the least corrupted countries in the world, crime rate is also low, so you see many scenes depicted in series like Mammon with certain limitations, they do not seem realistic in full... So some mystery is in place, but you have to concentrate on other elements still. The story goes with ups and downs, there are some catchy twists and turns, but when rounded up, you realise some loopholes or start to think: how come?

The performances are okay, with several famous Norwegian actors included, but, compared to other series, the main character performed by Jon Øigarden tended to be a bit arid... All in all, my apparent "mistake" was that I wachted it recently, not when it was first screened, as Norway has created several more interesting/versatile series after that.
