Unit One is a well made series from Denmark which I only recently discovered. The characters are rounded and their story develops during the episodes which each has a crime to solve. In my opinion the actors did a great job. The show caught my attention because I checked out Mads Mikkelsen's earlier work. And what a gem I found! I highly recommend the series.
Great series. Even though there is a certain amount of dwelling on the personal problems of the characters, this does not interfere with the plots and is even quite interesting. Based on true events but with a certain amount of humour. I just had to order season 2 straight away. Not many crime teams have a professional footballer attached, if any!
So loved the storeyline of this series, Love the Foreign actors. I must include that the Foreign movies are getting more & more professional. Just wonderful I can recommend this series and many other Foreign series to everyone.
Yes this released in 2000 but it lacks nothing because of that. Having watched many other Danish crime and political films this was up there among the best. Will now need to purchase series two.
Unit One is part of the Danish FBI (National Police) who work with local police on major crimes. Some stories are one episode long, some two. What holds them together is the story of the private lives of the team. If sub titles do not bother you then give this a go.
