Talk, talk, talk
17 May 2018 | by birckSee all my reviews

I generally like Scandinavian crime series, but this one is a crashing bore. Great acting, attention to detail, high production values-none of that can help when all the characters do is sit around talking. I watched the entire first episode, and that told me all I needed to know. Maybe to a Swede, a rehashing of the unsolved murder of Olaf Palme is fascinating in itself, but there needs to be a story, and if there's one here, it slipped past me. It's written as if the screenwriter and/or director wanted to stick rigidly to the historical record of the investigation, at the expense of motive, story arc, frame, and any sense of movement. One specific problem here is that some of the scenes are flashbacks to the original investigation into the murder, and some are current-time. And it's not clear which is which, or why the history is important. So: appealing characters, good acting, exotic locales, but lousy script and lousy direction. Don't bother.
