We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
There are only about 8 episodes but we've managed to watch it through twice. It's very dark, literally and figuratively. We've noticed that the farther north European TV shows are set the darker they are. Wallander is another example.
Love this series. Hope it continues for a while. To me the background music is very soothing while watching the story unfold. I can only order the disks, not streaming on Netflix so would like to know how they have streamed it.
Hinterland is very good, as is Shetland. The former is interesting because it's actually a Welsh-/English-language production.
We lived in London, UK for several years before returning to Canada in 2007. During that time we built up a large library of Region 2 DVDs so we have a multi-region player here. This allows us to order Region 2 DVDs from Amazon UK and France.
It means we keep an eye out for when shows go to DVD in Europe and then order the ones we want (for example, I gave my wife Victoria Season One for Christmas and we used to get Downton Abbey every November-January).
There are a lot of good British "police procedurals" out there: Vera, George Gently, Inspector Lewis inter alia.
Someone mentioned "Nordic crime" so I recommend a visit to this site www.nordicnoir.tv for a look at other British and European series.
