Terrible, terrible. Saved by the criminals.
14 April 2016 | by henrlundstromSee all my reviews

This is the fourth episode of the third and last season and the characters get increasingly moronic and slow by the minute.

The realism and genuineness of the police work and their emotions is what made the first season so great. It felt real, and the family issues that developed because of their line of work (both Wagner and the GSI force) felt real.

With this last series, and especially this episode, all of that is totally gone. Sophie Nordh, now in command of GSI after Patrik Agrell stepped down, is a poorly written character. All of her decisions feel emotionally driven, stupid and sometimes criminal. This makes me root for the criminals of the film, hoping to see bad things happen to these corrupt officers of GSI.

I'm sitting in my couch twisting and turning just hating this horrible writing. Hating what this series has become, because it used to be a fresh, new take on an old concept. Now it's tired, slow, unrealistic and just plain stupid.

The acting is decent for the most part I suppose. Meliz Karlge is as terrible as ever, and Jakob Eklund, who I normally enjoy watching is still not very good either. I could excuse their acting if it wasn't for the horrible writing. It's stiff, it's unreal, it's no good and most importantly, it's not entertaining.

However Jens Hultén is great and convincing. As are a lot of the other supporting characters. That's what almost makes this worth watching, brining it up to a 3/10.

I believe Johan Falk need Anders Nilsson more involved to be great, and it's a real shame that he isn't. Because this had the potential of being a really good series, and they ruined it.
