Good Nordic Noir TV Series
on 23 March 2014
I was hesitant in going for this series as i had just finished the brilliant 'Borgen' and 'The Killing' and therefore i thought this would not meet my expectations and thus it proved to be i regret to say.
Unfortunately, the first thing that was not as good was the subtitling, which was excellent in the above series. This subtitling was always slightly behind and one had to concentrate on it too much. Then, because the stories were only an hour long, there was not enough time to really develop the characters as there was in the above series but in the time period allowed i have to say it was still well done.
What was really good and superior to British and American TV series was the excellent acting and cinematography and great music and direction.. I will not go into the plots as this is well documented and are based on actual crimes in Denmark but maybe because of the inferior subtitling, i lost the thread a couple of times.
In summary, this is a TV series well worth viewing, but do not see 'Borgen' and 'The Killing' before it as you maybe slightly disappointed.
