| OK but not great!
This is a series we are now getting in the US on Mhz. Compared to the more modern Scandi-Noir offerings, this just seems a bit too contrived, and has all the usual focus of Norwegian Eco topics i.e environmental pollution by big companies, selling chemical weapons etc. As is common in many Norwegian films, logic seems to go out the door and story events just occur without explanation, as long as they fit the story to give it a happy ending. The lead character is a very scruffy looking detective who really could do with a good clean up himself. He seems to get into scrapes with the criminals without waiting for back up to help. Not sure if this is part and parcel for the character as I have not read the novels on which the series is based. The series is composed of a number of seemingly independent episodes so will have to review each one as I watch. The first two, Bitter Flowers and Sleeping Beauty are just watchable but have none of the psychological twists associated with the more modern Scanidi-Noir offerings from Sweden and Denmark. The early Norwegian attempts I find are more geared towards being Politically correct and since the dialog via the subtitles conveys this, have to be enjoyed in that context!
