IMDB's current photo is from an earlier, Finnish version
16 June 2019 | by montymonvieuxSee all my reviews

I'm almost done watching season one of this show, which is actually titled "Desperate Widows," on Amazon. I have also watched both seasons of "Black Widows" aka Mustat Lesket the earlier Finnish version (the predecessor of this show by two years). They are quite similar in story line, with a few variations. From a superficial viewpoint, this newer version is nice to view, as the actors are very attractive, their clothing is updated and all production values are excellent. However I prefer the original Finnish show as it had more accurate subtitles (in my opinion) and it was so easy to become engaged in the storyline and appreciate the character development.

If you want to see prettier people wearing more stylish clothing, this is your preferred version. If you want to become really engaged in the story, the previous one has my vote for recommended viewing.
