5.0 out of 5 stars Unusually troubled 'hero' makes for an unconventional & very dark crime series, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sebastian Bergman [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Rolf Lassgård often plays unconventional protoganists. This new series showcases a new anti-hero, Sebastian Bergman, a famed criminal profiler. When we first meet him at the start of the first episode, he's almost impossible to warm to. Boorish, sexist and with an ego to meet his frame. But as he blags his way onto a detective squad to get back in 'the game' layers of his personality, including why he's become the man we see, become clearer.
And by the time we leave him at the end of the last episode, he's become changed by his experiences and his personal life though not resolved is markedly improved.

So that's one reason why this is a great show to watch. The other reason is that the crimes he's trying to help solve are complex, bloody and compelling. If you're a fan of The Killing - Series 1-3 [Blu-ray] or The Bridge - BBC Series 1 [Blu-ray], you'll feel on familiar ground.

But what's the blu-ray edition like? Like all good blu-ray transfers, it faithfully reproduces the texture, detail and texture of the original photography. Appropriately gritty, but also very sharp and detailed where the scenes allow. It's not expensive on amazon so you might want to choose this edition over the DVD edition to enjoy this series at it's best.

Highly recommended. Let's hope a second series will follow soon.
