Named after the author of the books, this Swedish detective series has really good background stories. Too bad that in at least the first few episodes, none of the facial expressions actually make sense with the news they either receive or spread. Honestly, I’ve never seen such blank faces. It’s hardly believeable.
Anyway, it does get better after a while, but oddly in the second season, it’s mostly due to a new, younger face of Ida Jankowitsch.

One of the nice things about this series is that yes, it starts with what goes wrong and with whom, but it never completely goes by a certain script. It is always a surprise what you’re looking at, which keeps you at your toes.

OK, so you don’t need to watch it for the emotions (not saying they’re not there, just that they aren’t well-played by the cast), but the storylines are really quite powerful.
And: not every case ends necessarily in a completely ‘happy ending’. I like this too, as it means variety.
