Complicated story but had me hooked by the second episode.

I was taken in the the International Emmy for best drama series. The acting is passable; the technical stuff is okay. The music is melodramatic, intrusive and annoying. But the major flaw in this hopeless miniseries is the story. Setting aside the fact that it doesn't make sense, it's painfully predictable. Since the story is confused and not credible all the surprising twists and turns aren't surprises at all: just more of the same. The businessmen are the major bad guys. Quel surprise. The church people are bad guys. Most of the newspaper men are incompetent and unethical except for the two or three who are heroic, upright and pure. The police are incompetent. The major bad guy in the final predicable twist is a government bureaucrat.

Six hours of your life you'll never get back again.

Brilliantly done script and cinematography with fairly good acting. The subtitles seemed to follow the dialogue. This is a series that was hard not to binge watch. This is the best Norwegian film of the last decade. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
