wonderful feel-good show
28 November 2015 | by geoff-05768See all my reviews

Love this and its not my usual thing (bit of a contrast with Walking Dead), a very lively, upbeat, heartfelt message. Deals with real issues in - I would imagine - every public school in Europe and the USA. The acting is first rate and the humor funny, even though its very family friendly (unlike some of Rita). Hjørdis herself is a delight, with all the elements of a sad, pathetic character she is, in fact, the complete opposite. Judging by IMDb the child actors haven't done anything else but they were all fantastic. It doesn't matter that the outcome is totally predictable, its that kind of show - we don't want shock factor here, just a safe little world in which Hjørdis always triumphs. That's why its such a good interlude to the heavier Scandinavian stuff my wife and I usually watch (The Bridge being a fine example). t'm just hoping they make a second series.
