Better Than Hollywood by Scandinavian Country Mile
Leaving the plot aside for a moment - the production values in the series are fantastic. Who knew the Scandinavians had this capability?
Everything from the camerawork to the editing to the soundtrack is absolutely spot-on.
The story is of the murder of a young girl and its consequences. The encounters with her family are searing, the emotions are in 3-D. The plot is as convoluted as any Sherlockian could wish for and with a political dimension that enhances the tension and keeps the viewer guessing.
The story by the way is different in many ways from the American version (which is good in its own way but can't hold a candle to the Danish version). The foreign language (i'm British) adds to the mystery and allure of the entire adventure.
Excellent all rounder - I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
Worth every penny
20 episodes of riveting crime drama and political intrigue, perfectly crafted.
