Vive la Difference! For those bored with formulaic cop shows, this Gallic offering will add spice to your evenings. It takes a look at the police system from all angles, including the judicial, executive and political. It is raw in nature and has believable (and sometimes sinister) characters that enhance the brilliant dialogue. C'est magnifique!

Fortunately, the creators spent some time creating a background for the Scandinavian characters otherwise you'd want them all to drown on their first voyage, given that on their first trip to England the protoganists savagely plunder a monastery full of defenseless monks. As a Briton, I found myself cheering for the (English) opposition during the battles, but when the plot switched back to the Vikings' homeland, I found I could identify with the main characters.
The series doesn't have the depth of say, Game of Thrones, which I'd watched immediately prior to this, but it is a very good evocation of a savage time.

Bought this for an anti-royalist party. Can't think of any other reason to buy it as the blurb and categories chosen are mawkish in the extreme - like a chocolate fondue sweetened with saccharin, coated in honey and served with double cream on top.
