Swedish series on netflix. When a bank robbery goes wrong, the thief takes people hostage at an open house nearby. And the local police force is father and son leif and jack. When they finally get in the apartment, something is not right.... what really happened here?? The father wants to just close up the case, since no money was taken at the bank, but the son is persistent. It's fun, watching everyone scramble to figure out what the heck happened. The captions are well done, in voice tone and in translation. Directed by felix herngren. Based on the book by fredrik backman.

I watched this with English dubs and The head PO has an Irish accent and the rest British. I felt like I was watching a good ole UK show. Whoever did the dubbing mist be commended. Decent little series to get thru the evening. I think well acted( but you never know when you watch it dubbed. Decent little serie.

Fantastic short series with great storyline and cleverly weaving together the stories of the 10 characters. Full of surprises and leaves one with a warm feeling at the end.

Acting and dialogue of a high order and very amusing in places. It's similar in some ways to Noomi Rapace's excellent role in The Trip (another outstanding Swedish film) and Crash in the ways the characters are developed.

I'd certainly watch it again !

"Cozy Mystery" (a subgenre name that I didn't know existed) is a wholesome story of a bank robbery gone wrong after which, the robber is locked in an apartment along with its potential buyers in an open house.

6 eps, about 25-30 mins each - quick watch! Great storytelling/writing, great acting, well shot and put together.

This turns from comedy to mystery to feel good real quick. Different & refreshing in this genre.

Would recommend if you're looking for something fun, lighthearted but intriguing at the same time, check this out.

And it's well worth taking that drive with these fine actors, interesting characters. I enjoyed the plot. I enjoyed not knowing where this limited series was going. This is an uplifting series, a great diversion from the reality of this world.

Fairly predictable "mystery" drama that explores timeless themes in modern times, such as family, motherhood, guilt, justice and forgiveness. There's some comedy in the beginning, but I found that dropped off as they explained the story that unfolded behind the scenes in the hostage apartment of the first episode.

I watched the English-dubbed version of this Swedish 6-part miniseries, and I thought it was very good.

The series starts as the typical mystery comedy, but evolves to a story with a deeper meaning where you have to question what is right or wrong under specific circumstances and what i means to be humane.

The acting is great with a cast of Swedish stars where Alfred Svensson does a remarkable performance, planting him as a really good actor far from the role as "Billy" in "Leif & Billy".

A true gem of a mini-series!

I'd describe the book, Anxious People, by Backman as a confused but heartfelt story about a group absurd but likable people. This adaptation by Felix Herngren however is merely a confused story about absurd people. But there's nothing heartfelt or likable about it, making it a pretty dull tv-experience.

I found this series to be a lighthearted look at the complexities of simply being human. Each character has a life issue that ultimately causes change in the life of another. Well done.

Gripping plots. Great acting. A very moving story. A bit funny at the beginning too. Don't skip it just because it's not in English. I binged it in one setting. It's not that long so it's great for binging.

I just finished reading the book 3 days ago and I was anxious to see the series (pun intended). The trailer was a bit of a turn-off since it marketed the series as a crazy comedy which it really isn't. If something, it's a study of human souls. So minus 1 point already.

How did I rate it? There were some things in the book that didn' t make it to the series, minus 1 point. On the other hand, there were some things that weren't in the book but the writers probably thought it was a good idea to create them for no reason. Minus 1 point. Don't wanna sound superficial but the younger cop looking like a hamster really didn't help. Minus 1 point. I really enjoyed the older, experienced actors who portrayed Anna-Lena and Jim. Plus 1 point. And that is how I came to 7/10. Read the book!
