More quality Nordic Noir,
This review is from: Sebastian Bergman [DVD] (DVD)
I was keen to see Sebastian Bergman as it stars one of my favourite actors, Rolf Lassgard - an actor I've been fast catching up on of late in films such as After the Wedding and The Hunters (Jagarna). I've yet to watch his Wallander's but they are on my list. Sebastian Bergman is not as polished or sophisticated as The Killing or Borgen but anyone who enjoys top notch nordic noir or crime drama in general will love Bergman. Rolf exudes class as usual as the gruff, grief stricken criminal profiler and the plot keeps you guessing right until the end. The character is reminiscent of Cracker but the setting and nature of the crime is unmistakably Nordic!

I haven't seen the programme yet, even though I am a dedicated Scandi-slaughter fan. A couple of things put me off.
Firstly, the feeling that this is ground that's already been covered; you mentioned Cracker, but there is also the recent Those Who Kill.
But secondly, it's HIM, Rolf Lassgård. I remember him in After the Wedding and Wallander, and I just think he's a dreadful actor. It's not like Scandinavia is short of good actors, so I have no idea why RL, and Lena Endre(?) seem to pop up in so many films and programmes.
But I will watch the series. Who knows, maybe I'll get a pleasant surprise.
