The stunning scenery of the Stockholm Archipelago is what carries this series. It's not the acting or the scripts which are childish and amateurish. The setting is breathtaking as is the picture perfect little towns on the islands which all appear to be Summer playgrounds for the very wealthy in Sweden. The episodes are all predictable and it is probably the undercurrents of the private lives of the two lead actors that is more interesting. It's a kind of "will they, won they" ever get together. Compared to the more sophisticated Scandi-noir offerings like "The Killing" or "The Bridge", or their more in-depth dramas like "Borgen", this is a light-hearted, not to be taken seriously genre, crime mystery that is more along the lines of the English series "Agatha Raisin". If you like watching the serious crime dramas from Scandinavia, this is not the series for you. If you are more interested in something more akin to "Agatha Raisin" or similar then this will work.
