Storyline

Former criminal Rickard has vanished. Fleeing Sweden and the old friends he has testified against, he abandons his name, his life, and his family to start over in Thailand. Ten years later and still with a price on his head, Rickard knows that a return home would be a death sentence. And so he ekes out his existence as a small-time crook in the back alleys of Phuket. Life's tough and dirty, but at least it won't kill him. But when his fifteen-year-old daughter Thyra comes looking for him, Rickard's self-imposed exile in this gritty paradise is soon under threat. His attempts to push her away only drive her deeper into the dark underworld that Rickard knows only too well. After a momentary lapse in judgment, Rickard's cover is blown and both he and his daughter find themselves in very real danger. Their only chance of survival is to strike back at those who are coming for them. But how can he protect her when he can't even protect himself?

Good, in fact, but does not measure up to many other Swedish series
8 January 2018 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

True, the thrill is there and maintained, episodes well composed and connected, the number of cliches limited, but apparently the different dimensions of Swedish and Thai acting and sporadic use of beautiful nature as a filler did not let me enjoy Farang as much as e.g. Bron/Broen, Kodnamn Hunter, Röd snö - to name a few... Ole Rapace is good, but too dominant; as for other characters, it was to my liking that some "good guys" died as well. Also, I liked realistic round-ups, with some loose ends left, without the U.S. type of spreading happy end.
