| Dysfunctional Family Melodrama, Swedish Style
I would not call this Nordic Noir but more of a Nordic Soap Opera. It moves slowly and as has been mentioned, bits could well be cut out as the scenes add nothing to the story. There are lots of long gazes, periods of silence, flashbacks galore but the plot is really quite predictable. The story is built on a foundation of lies and deceit, practiced by all the characters. It goes beyond showing them as flawed but pushes the viewer to actively dislike them as they all seem to lie and cheat. As with Swedish shows, there is lots of nudity and sex, some of which really does not add much to the plot. It's worth the watch but because it's so slow moving, you wont miss much if you watch it on an intermittent basis.

The second season is a bit disappointing in that the story takes on more fantasy with little thought given to the huge holes in the plot. Events just seem to occur in an impossible manner that just lacks total credibility. If you do watch it, just go with the flow as the plot will not stand up to much analysis and thought.
