(Sorry about the weird accent mark over 'e' in Hassėl, but IMDb does some automatic spelling and changes Hassėl to "Hassle" otherwise) If you're a fan of the "real" Roland Hassėl from early 90's, you'll get deeply disappointed.
Except for the name, this new "Hassėl" has NOTHING in common with the old series.
The personalities are not the same. They have just taken a few names, Hassėl, Ruda, Simon - but they have nothing in common with the old ones.
The stories do not have the same mood or manner. The story is over complicated, exaggerate, and giving a very distant perspective from reality - As opposed to the simple stories in the old Hassėl.
Recognizing Stockholm is not the same. In the old series, there were nice views of Stockholm, many places you could recognize. Here the camera is dizzy, they almost never show the surroundings without blurring the images.
If you have seen the old Hassėl and liked it, you will most likely get very disappointed if you see this. You'll get annoyed that they have stolen the name, but nothing from the feeling of the old Hassėl and nothing from the personalities.
If you haven't seen the old Hassėl, its also unlikely that you will like this series.
A piece if advise - just leave Hassėl 2017 unseen.
