Customer Review

on 14 December 2013
The first season of The Protectors lives up to the expectations raised by such shows as Wallander, The Bridge, Borgen and The Killing. This five year old Danish T.V. series is not quite so dark and gritty as the some of those and features younger actors in the primary roles, with a few more familiar faces among the supporting cast.

As the title implies, it is a crime thriller focusing upon a special protection unit of the Danish police force and follows the experiences of three new recruits. The treatment does reach into the domestic lives of the characters but not so much as to detract from the continuity of the plot. In general this is more like the recent Arne Dahl series than, say, The Killing. Each story is told over two episodes and there are ten to complete the season. The plots are reasonably varied given the nature of the unit, there is quite a lot of action and most episodes are likely to spring at least one surprise on the viewer. On the minus side, the new recruits are pitched into the deep end rather sooner than would be the case in real life and - even for those not speaking Danish - it is evident that the English subtitling is no more than adequate. Overall, this is yet another entertaining addition to Arrow Films "Nordic Noir" collection.
