Yes at times it was gripping. No one character stands out though in any sympathetic way to root for.

It reminded me a bit of how they set up the team at the beginning of a US series called "Wanted", so I was rather expecting one of the team to die in the first episode as happened in that series. Well, and as seems to be the thing in a lot of new series nowadays.

That'll make him cross!!


Viggo and Hjelm have both appeared in episodes of Krister Wallander whereas Nyberg is a former professional strongman and won the Swedish version of SCD in 2009

Interesting and will definitely watch next weeks episode. Like others I thought it really picked up in the final 10 mins.

It really is a really diverse and mixed group, all having their talents and weaknesses. I thought Chavez was a bit of an arse especially towards Hjelm and there was that moment when he looked a real hypocrite. But I can see that relationship changing. It's clear they will need each other and will have to work together to crack the case.

That makes the "do I know you from somewhere" scene funnier now

I think that "Thickest Cop of the Week" award goes to Viggo.

Did anyone understand the 'Cleaner' bit where the guy wiped the evidence board away - and then wiped it back!

Nope and I'm none the wiser after someone asked him about it on twitter

@Swissss Well, the cleaner is a compilation of what isn't really accessible to logic, kind of...

I didn't think this anything special, to misquote a line from a classic film,

"Round up the usual clichés."

Opening scene, where the cop thinks he's "Dirty Harry" at the hostage location.

The wife who is being neglected "because of the job."

The detective who follows a known criminal on his own and surprise surprise gets caught.

Feel free to add your own examples.

Maverick cops, East European criminals. It was bearable, but lacked originality and charm.

I think there's more to it than that. His wife seemed to suspect it was almost a death wish that made him be so reckless and it was apparently out of character for him.

Maybe we'll get more of a back story that will make it not quite so cliched.

This may be true, but it was still a "Dirty Harry" moment, in real life he wouldn't have been allowed to go in. A trained "hostage negotiator" would be required, it's probably a requirement world-wide now.
Did he deliberately aim to injure, rather than kill, so that he would be hospitalised then charged and imprisoned so that his family would not be immediately deported?
Then throw-up because of shooting the guy?
If so, seems a bit far fetched.

I too think the business with the board was a dream as the guy had been working long hours and he'd momentarily gone to sleep.

"It had better improve in the next episode."

Well, I think this is proof (if proof were needed) that some Scandanavian drama can be as bad, if not worse, than anything we produce. It was watchable, but nothing special, and certainly not in the same league as the other imports we've enjoyed recently.
