15 hours of entertaining Nordic Noir
20 October 2015
Arne Dahl is a Swedish Police drama following a group of 8 detectives assigned to solve the country's toughest cases. In theme, the series is much like "Unit One" (which I thought was better than AD, really a superb show). The main difference is that in Arne Dahl a case is covered over 3 hours on each of these 5 discs which allows for more depth in the stories, which is good. Each episode interweaves the personal lives of the Detectives along with the crime so that by the series end, you've formed quite an attachment to a few of them. I can only give this show 4 stars because of the 5 cases; 2 are great, 2 are just 'okay' and 1 was just too confusing to be satisfying at the finish. This show is certainly worth your time if you like 'Nordic Noir' as much as I do, its just a notch below "The Protectors" (Danish Secret Service) and "The Bridge".
