Season 1 (just finished) is very engaging. At this time, I've binged several years worth of shows in the same genre, made all over the world. It gets harder and harder to find the good stuff. Modus is not quite as good as Bron (The Bridge) or the US version of The Killing (WHEN will we get to see the original Forbrydelsen in the US?!?) but it is right up there. Good production values, good acting (trivia: Melinda Kinnaman is US The Killing Joel Kinnaman's sister), some great acting (Krister Henriksson IS Wallander in Henning Mankell's series), and a good storyline (re. IMDB, based on a Norwegian novel by Anne Holt). We know the identity of the killer from the start, so the journey is the why of his origin and the suspense as the killer closes in. The social issues are more suited to a few decades ago, but maybe that's my wishful thinking. I rolled my eyes a bit that stereotyped ignorant Americans with thick regional accents were brought in to carry the plot. (It's equally annoying when the reverse is true for American TV.) But overall, a very good, entertaining season, definitely close to an 8 (but I'll add a miniscule point to help boost the unfair 6). At this time (Spring 2019), Modus is available in the US on PBS (through Amazon, in my case). On to Season 2!
