A particular series with twisted plot and plain settlement
18 January 2016 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

In the recent decade, the Scandinavian countries (Denmark and Sweden in particular) have launched so many good drama thrillers that is difficult to follow up, partially also due to the fact that the number of performers involved is limited and you begin to wonder have you seen this or that or not... Also in Gåsmamman, there are several actors often seen in related films/series, e.g. Alexandra Rapaport, Magnus Roosmann, or Shebly Niavarani, but its venue is somewhat distinct from other Swedish series - the events take place in a limited time and locations, the flashbacks are in the beginning of the following episode only, thus bringing back the highlights what happened before. In spite of lots of drug-related felonies and problems, a lot of time is dedicated to family ties, with minor children playing a significant role. The latter is probably the reason why the main solution is no inevitable crime result, but a more complex issue when difficult choices are to be made by and within close relatives and kinsmen. So, the cast does a good teamwork, the leading character/performance does not stand out too much.

In general, a strong crime series, but not among the Swedish finest, no Bron/Broen, for example. The plot could have been a bit more compact (perhaps 5 series), some events and scenes are protracted: 7.5 points for plot, 8.5 for performances.
