User Reviews

Nordic Gris
26 August 2018 | by ikanboySee all my reviews

Moves at a slow pace, so not for millennials, but nuanced enough to keep up interest. The two main characters are oil and water but gradually evolve their relationship enough to have us care. Main problems are the plot holes left dangling for too long, and the stories center never seems to hold enough interest, but there are plenty of side plots. Also the usual Nordic Noir rules are in force: 1. Always have the lead female go into danger alone. 2. Always have the female lead not follow instructions. 3. Always break into a house without a warrant. The female lead seems to have been chosen to look, not act, like Saga from The Bridge, and her blond tresses seem to be sculpted deliberately in most scenes. At 12 episodes it's too long. 8-10 could have done it.
