Not great but not terrible
26 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of "Scandi-Noir" genre but to be honest, this one is just overly complicated with very little return. To keep track of the plot with its biblical references, moral discussions, tedious dialog which at times seems out of place, and the number of characters that keep appearing out of the woodwork, one of the boards that police use to solve a crime would be helpful. You need to try an remember who's who, who's connected to whom, and what their role is in the overall plot. The story could have been told in half the number of episodes, and without some of the very pointless scenes that seemed unrelated to the plot. The editing is not great as things jump around too much. The characters are not very likable, and the lead is very flat and two-dimensional. I'm not sure I'd watch a second season if it were produced.
