Nordic, Not Noir
19 March 2019 | by socrates17See all my reviews

I can't believe that I rated this so highly, but I wound up loving it. Despite being extremely cynical, it's too over-the-top and too post-modern to be noir. Stella, the protagonist, is a piece of work. One has to look very closely and snatch at a few brief moments to find any redeeming qualities in her at all. The police, politicians and financial elite aren't any better. Occasionally, I'll read a review off something complaining that there were no likeable or admirable characters. If you have that issue, this is NOT a show for you! Stella is likeable, but only in a very nasty way, as she wreaks havoc among her friend (singular) and acquaintances. She frequently breaks the fourth wall and talks to the audience, with scenes inserted that display what she's talking about. Sometimes characters in those scenes look straight at the audience and smile. The show has a very dark sense of humor, and if people get what they deserve, it's by accident. It's very stylishly filmed. It's a hoot. imdb seems to think that a 2nd season is in the works, but gives no details. I really hope that's the case. Streams on Sundance Now in the US, which is how I bumbled into it.
