BBC4 has been showing yet another Scandinavian thriller series. I've so far seen four 90-minute shows based on two novels by Arne Dahl, whose real name seems to be Jan Arnald. Compared with Borgen, The Killing and The Bridge, it's not terribly good.

An elite team of miscellaneous people with different skills have been gathered together to solve (so far) two serious crimes - the second is about ... The Kentucky Killer! Unfortunately, things move either very slowly or very fast, and there is some unnecessary comedy humour plus some nasty modus operandi stuff by the villains (pliers, sort-of-crucifixion, etc.) Also, I find the white-upon-white subtitles quite difficult to read, which wasn't a problem with the previous series. Oh well, can't win 'em all!
