Why is this series great? First of all, I'm tired of mediocre American cinematography, I'm tired of English language and expressions, I'm tired of the same exterior (American cities), I'm tired of American customs. European series, Denmark, European actors, European cities and Danish language are real refreshment! I looked at the first two episodes, the theme of the series is not something particularly original, but it's important that the performance is not American. The lead actress Alba August has played better in the first two episodes than all American actors together. The atmosphere is what makes this series great so far.
