Dicte is a possible serie if you’re looking for entertainment, not too much to think about and nothing too heavy. None of them are truly that realistic, and Dicte is nowhere near a super hero of any kind. She is not special. Very stubborn, and more often then not, wrong. Not in the sense that it’s obviously immediately though. She does things and you’re like ‘wtf?! I wouldn’t exactly approve of such an action from any journalist soon?!’ You do forget she is a journalist quite quickly, because she doesn’t seem to care that much herself. She is just curious, goes after a vague hunch.
It’s also amazing how she just gets the support of the Danish police, because she is actually quite clumsy. Her theories are farfetched and she is far from ‘always right’. At times she has a hunch that appears to be in the right direction, but there’s never any logic to it, it seems to me.
Then again, you wonder why she doesn’t just work as a cop instead of a journalist?
Also, not all actors are that convincing. This doesn’t help either.
The series is mostly based on two episodes being connected, so it does work great to keep watching. You’re not ‘forced’ to watch the entire series to finally see it unwrap itself.
None of the romantic relationships actually work in this series. You don’t see any of them truly happening. Only the one between Wagner and Dicte’s friend, and that’s the one that gets cut short. You would have seen that one happening. After that, the friend miraculously disappears, too.
The other romances are not surprising. Not even a little bit.
