Great acting and story lines
10 June 2017 | by rikbruinsmaSee all my reviews

The stories and build up of this series is amazing. The way the characters match and are not overdone (like us series) is really good.

Ville put down an excellent role where you follow his pattern of evolving, not only work wise but also as the family man that he is.

I really recommend people to watch this great series, i've watched in one breathe.

Waiting for season 2 ;-)
