| Apparently the first true Nordic Noir coming from Finland
About a decade has passed when Forbrydelsen, Millennium-stories and others have spread throughout the world with their wittiness and approach. Until now, all other Nordic countries, even small Iceland, have had their own successful series - except Finland. But with Sorjonen/Bordertown, this shortcoming was rectified. And so vigorously!

Indeed, Sorjonen is no sneaking in, it is a versatile and well created story, with interesting characters and powerful performances (particularly Ville Virtanen as Detective Inspector Kari Sorjonen; somehow I have missed to follow this character actor before), where all members of the cast have their important contribution, there are hardly no excessive characters or events; even some story lines and scenes you might think lead to clichés, they have not (until now), but something has to be expected or understandable, otherwise all the plot would plunge into tedious mysticism and supernatural conclusion of cases. True, there is one case per 2(3) episodes, but there are strong links among them and new stuff from the past is explained, thus it is advisable to watch all them in succession.

Well done, guys! And beautiful Finnish nature provides additional value the whole concept. Looking forward to Season 2 already.

PS Season 2 is meaty as well, although Sorjonen himself is a bit less main character there. I hope they create more seasons.
