The first season is excellent TV and pretty faithful to the book. Not an easy watch, though.
I wish I’d known that - I would much rather have watched the original. Apart from anything else, I love a Scandi drama!
I got really bored during the first episode and turned it off, maybe I'll try it againMare of Easttown was superb! First episode a bit crap but stick with it!
i've watched almost everything on Walter Presents!So much great European stuff on All4 in the Walter Presents section. Some of it makes BBC output look very lame. And it's all free of course. Recommend brilliant Belgian series The Twelve - courtroom drama and Code 37 Sex Crimes - quirky and at times humorous police series, Dutch series The Swingers - dark drama with humour at times, Gritty Spanish prison drama Locked Up. Supernatural Belgian drama Hotel Beau Sejour. And on BBC IPlayer you should still be able to get, in my opinion, the best police drama ever made, the Swedish/Danish classic, The Bridge.
Yes - Before we die in the UK remake was pretty formulaic and wooden, as someone else mentioned. original in Swedish was far better. What is it with BBC drama these days?I wish I’d known that - I would much rather have watched the original. Apart from anything else, I love a Scandi drama!
Thanks - will check out the Pleasure Principle. Have always loved Code 37 - started watching it because we had just been to Gent and got hooked.i've watched almost everything on Walter Presents!
i'm right with you on Code 37 - Sex Crimes, a much better series than the title might suggest, with likeable and believable characters. And the first couple of series at least of Locked Up are terrific. I just finished the Pleasure Principle, about murders committed in Czechia, Poland, and the Ukraine, which was quite decent. There are a lot of gems out there.
