In two new Nordic Noir thrillers, Rolf Lassgård, one of Scandinavia's most popular actors (Wallander, False Trail), assumes a powerful new role as Police profiler Sebastian Bergman. Bergman is strong-minded, politically incorrect, abrasive and grief-stricken, since he has yet to come to terms with the loss of both his wife and daughter in the 2004 Thailand tsunami. In the first of the two thrillers, from the creators of the original Wallander TV films, he helps police in his home town solve the murder of a 15-year-old boy who had an affair with one of his teachers. In the second, he attempts to catch a serial killer who seems to be modelling his attacks on those of a jailed killer whom Bergman brought behind bars himself...

He is very unpopular with the former colleagues in the police force due to his abrasive, undisciplined and politically incorrect comments and actions - and his philandering ways do nothing to endear him to the new recruits either. But he is respected for his insight and as his old friend at the head of the investigation allows him in the team to help him move on with his life, Bergman proves his worth and leads the way for future cooperation.
There are two feature length episodes on the DVD, the first dealing with the dead boy in the woods and the second dealing with a killer that apparently copies the murders in one of Bergman's old cases.
The series is well acted (almost too well as Bergman is truly a disagreeable person that I find it difficult to empathize with even when we know of his great loss) with some good stories and the setting works well. The camera is a bit unruly to begin with but fortunately it calms down and allows the actors and locations to "tell" the story. One thing that I thought was overdone though was the many times we see him grabbing in vain for his daughters hand. I think with an actor of that calibre there are many other ways that his grief could have been portrayed rather than the obvious symbolism of him unconsciously clenching and unclenching his hand in a desperate attempt to save her life.
All in all a good start to the series and I hope they will bring out the next episodes soon.
This was one of the most explicit novels, and it kept me on tenterhooks. The characters are all so well written,that I could see them in my mind's eye. All of the detectives with big egos, always wanting to best each other. The suspects all have some hidden secrets, and when investigated, well... Then, Sebastian Bergman, the biggest lout with nothing that exudes sex, is able to bed every woman he meets. He finds comfort in his sexual liaisons. He has one of the most interesting of personal stories, but he reveals very little. Having difficulty sleeping, his work as a criminal psychologist, leads him to varied places, literally and emotionally. Bergman is the man to look to. He often goes off on his own, and he is often right. Much to the team's dismay. They want to solve the murder, but THEY want to be the one who solves it. Bergman with his secrets and mysteries has the biggest surprise of his life!
Brilliant writing, terrific plot and characters brought to life, this is the stuff excellent murder mysteries are made of.
Highly Recommended. prisrob 03-29-13
Quite quickly one learns of the tragedy that lies at the heart of that behaviour.
The two crimes that feature in the series are used not only as a backdrop to Sebastian Bergman's transition to a final coming to terms with his underlying grief,but his interaction with the serial killer drives forward the momentum to a change of character that enables him to forego a newly arisen chance of happiness.
Rolf Lassgard portrayal of Sebastian Bergman is superb,as is that of the actor who plays the serial killer,and in particular the scenes of mental mind games between the two are engrossing.
For anyone who appreciates a film with slowly engrossing,well written,storyline,and some excellent acting,Sebastian Bergman is well worth watching.
