The Clueless Detective
21 December 2013 | by steven-222See all my reviews

The setting is the Swedish island of Gotland, ringed by beautiful beaches and studded with summer resort houses. You couldn't ask for a better setting.

Not so the detective, or the plots. You know how some detectives draw you in with their odd character traits or their all-too-human failings, or amaze you with their ability to draw startling inferences from even the simplest observations? None of that applies to this guy. He's as dumb as a doorknob, and almost as charismatic. He never sees through a lie, never perceives even the most obvious clues thrust under his nose, understands nothing about human relationships (including his own), and has the personality of a dead fish.

So what we have here is a clueless detective stumbling through some very cumbersome and clumsy plots. Imagine the elegance of a really good episode of Vera, or Silent Witness, or Cracker, or Morse. Now forget all that, because you won't see anything remotely that good here.

What you will see is some great scenery, some predictable family drama, occasional male and female eye candy (attractive young Swedish and German actors), and just enough plot progression to keep you watching (maybe) for the full 90 minutes.

So...barely 3 stars from me.
