The Crown Jewel of Finnish Crime Drama
11 May 2020 | by odopalmgrenSee all my reviews

The cinematograpy is unbelievably good throughout the whole series and it makes it the sellingpoint of the show. Although the show is highly concentrated on the cinematography and making the setting feel believable, the show does not lack a good plot or actors. The whole package is a entertaining Scandinavian Crime drama that has the potential to compete with the best shows in the category such as Broen.

Finnish entertainment production should appreciate this show as the greatest achievement Finland has achieved internationally TV- wise and learn from it.
