Interesting Story the Gay Aspect was a Neat.
8 March 2018 | by cacharoesSee all my reviews

It was a rather interesting show, I had picked to watch it because the description had sounded interesting and I enjoy Norwegian media. I was rather pleasantly surprised to find that the main character was actually gay. It is pretty rare for the sole main character to be gay in a show, when the show subject is not about being gay, so that was neat. I liked the aspect that it featured a normal mystery crime story with a gay character though him being gay was a very small detail, you could easily forget he was gay as it his interactions with his love interest are probably only 10 to 30 seconds of each episode. I sort of wished his interests character had somewhat more involvement in the show to see they perhaps work together but overall I felt it was a nice touch in showing a gay character in a normal context. Aside from that aspect the story had some depth to it and the situation gets ever complicated as things go on. Nikolai can never seem to get break which made me feel bad for him. It is true that some parts do seem a bit dull but there were some heart felt moments and some twists that made it grab your attention, and I always looked forward to seeing how love interest would show up and be incorporated.

So Overall I rather enjoyed it and it was an interesting crime/mystery show with a hint of LGBT in there. If a second season of this was made I certainly would watch it and see how it develops further and hopefully improves.
