Maybe the book was better
20 February 2019 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This is a series that deals with the start of the AIDS epidemic in Sweden. It's a bit like "Longtime Companion" or Boys in the Band" but nowhere as finely crafted or at the level of those two films. This is full of cliches and lacks character development. The level of production is poor, and the film really is in need of a script. Maybe the writers just took parts of the book and skipped through it too rapidly. The acting is poor and the series drags in part. It could have been a better crafted product about an important era in history, but just lacks sufficient depth to illustrate this at all.
