| Another solid work coming from Norway
Norway entered the venue of profound and taut drama series a bit later than the Swedes and the Danes, but yet powerfully and so we have been able to enjoy e.g. Øyevitne, Frikjent, Okkupert, Kodenavn Hunter and several others. It is to my liking to acknowledge that Halvbroren can be included in this presentable row - in spite of less dynamism and focusing on 4 generations within ca. 40 years.

True, the script is sometimes uneven and the very ending could have been less trivial, but distinct characters, strong performances (in all ages) and realistic intertwining of different eras together with precise mood detection make this series catchy to follow. I am unable to recall when I last saw so wittily created scenes with symbiosis of comic and tragic, a kind of warm black humour than in Halvbroren, where e.g. bullying and death produce multiple giggling moments.

So, another recommended series, to be distributed more than so far - as it has already won more than dozen awards from different countries.
