Fantastic series
22 May 2017 | by sailor99See all my reviews

I wonder if Louie and I have seen the same "Elven"!

The series I have seen is realistic and thrilling from the part 1 to part 8, and you learn a lot about the history of the Cold War. The Norwegians have again shown, that they make series worth watching. Recently I saw "Nobel" and now "Elven". I say:"Don't miss it!" George, Denmark
