Finally! Finally an unpretentious, down-to-earth, normal, gifted TV Commissioner from Scandinavia at the end of 50, instead of all the alpha women under 40, such as Maria Wern and Katrine Jensen, Saga Norén or Sarah Lund, the imagines of (male) leaders as "my best man". So always be smart, tough and athletic, but often some Gents have, from a Saint to a whore, consequently, the telegenic traits of her sex the most. So finally: Hanna Svensson.
As the title character in a Five part series that is a bit different than much of what spills out of the North of Europe to the ZDF. At the beginning of the series, namely the Swedish economy is pushed to an investigator of your (female) Manager in early retirement. Austerity measures, "you understand?" You don't understand, waived grumpy on two extra years ' salary at the full Pension and goes better with the solitary Björn (Magnus Krepper) on the trail of rival motorcycle gangs, the Hanna's colleague, Sven kidnapped, tortured and murdered.
Previously, however, we have yet to learn that you had a relationship with the married victim. In a flashback, the lone investigator brings their own son, Christian (Adam Pålsson) for drug trafficking in the jail. Because it is also the fastest, but quite matter-of-factly, a little lonely, but relatively robust, because you smoke and drink and otherwise without much fanfare, fallible, instead of inappropriate acts, this unusually ordinary Commissioner in the exceptionally unusual commissioners immeasurably rich criminal industry in Scandinavia is a pleasant exception, with not only their peers can identify.
a bigger puzzle
The Remains evidenced in a deliberate manner, such as by casual the men's television-dominated slow, even for women beyond young people request profiles – even in the cliché-prone detective. Especially in this country, TV-COP were inside of Hannelore Hoger to Hannelore Elsner and Yes, sometimes grey and frail, but only because they were previously young successfully. If "Hanna Svensson" get now, where others get off soon, it is, therefore, a strong Signal in the ageing society.
The more you would have liked, of course, the beautiful Marie Richardsen ("special unit Gothenburg") and its consistently younger players, therefore, only less artificial synchronization, but also more narrative train (Director: Simon Kajser). With 540 minutes Hanna pulls Svensson's epic battle against Sweden's organized crime definitely too much in the length.
he remains still, worth seeing, is situated on the screenplay. Unlike in the Scandi Noir usual, Niklas caught Rockströms characters lastly, changes in the network of political, economic, media, religious and cultural intrigue, in order to stage the Whole thing just crass and complex enough for the purgatory of attention.
The only Link in the complexity of the contemporary series, a Russian U-boat, with the Croatian drug dealer Asian fabric to Scandinavia. Also on the local level, the audience can get confused, who is just coming in as a perpetrator, victim, and mole in question. But a note block on the knees is not necessary to keep the Overview.
Remains a greater mystery: Why is it advertised on the German-Swedish co-production as a "Neoriginal", this is pre-online and not to see on Sunday at the mother station, however, Neo?" This is a Label", the ZDF, "bundles specific and selected series for the users of ZDFmediathek, and is not alone on YouTube." Typical case of label fraud. Hanna Svensson, determine!More about
