More of the same - and what is wrong with that?
on 8 May 2014
I bought series 1 for my wife one Christmas because her work colleagues kept telling her to watch it. I was highly dubious about watching so much tv purely in subtitles with no English at all, but it is testament to how good it was that after 5 minutes you just don't notice you're doing it.
Series 2 is more of the same formula - murder, politics, police, corruption, red herrings galore, and it works just as well. It is shorter than series 1, and I think it is the better for that. There were so many red herrings along the way in series 1 that when it came to the crunch at the end, many of them were not alluded to in any way, leaving some unsatisfactory loose ends.
It is a sure sign of how good these are that we frequently put one on just before bed, and when it ended, looked at each other and said "just one more?".
TV at its best. And I have just found there is a series 3! That's next Christmas sorted then...
