Sorjonen/Bordertown meets Forbrydelsen/The Killing
7 November 2018 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

While Nordic Noir has been alive and kicking for over a decade, the Finns have entered this "competition" much later, basically with Sorjonen in 2016. As it was received well, some others followed, with Karppi being sold to Netflix. Not bad!

Although the script is no so smooth at times, with some ambiguous scenes for the sake of thrill, and the leading characters are not so strong and bright-line, the mood is well captured, using Finnish landscape and winter weather. A certain aridity is caused by the Finns´ typology and, in relation to modern criminology, using computers and mind-work is more realistic than constant shootings and chases we often see in US works. There are some nice twists and intertwining events, and performances are at least good, sometimes more (e.g. Jani Volanen, Tommi Korpela), and the so-called green thinking often annoying in Scandinavian series is not repressing here.

Thus, while not at the same level as e.g. Sorjonen, Karppi is still a nice contribution into the range of good and successful Nordic crime series.
