This show hits the ground running. It is fast paced and emotional. The actors did an excellent job of depicting the hustle and life's struggles. I was impressed. Much love from Texas.
The settings, realism and the charachters are not something were used to in Swedish cinema.Its a swedish top boy/gomorra and THE best swedish portrayal of a crime of life which is the actual daily life of more people in Sweden than ever.Finally something that feels genuine.
One of the best series i have seen !!Tagically, this is how gang crime works in Sweden.The series contains excitement, love, betrayal and sadness.I have no words for how brutally good this series is!
One of the best swedish series i EVER SEEN.The actors was amazing and hope it will be a season 2
the realism the crime life stuff like the underground life
felt so real!
Over all solid acting and script. If you liked Top Boy you will probably like this series. I'm in three episodes and really appreciate it. Cinematography is great. A lot of it takes place in Stockholms "miljonprogram" areas (estates/projects) which is juxtaposed with more affluent environments.
If you liked series like "Gomorrah" or "top boy" You are going to love this one. Some of the choices they make are really stupid and makes me think what the heck the writers were thinking. But its a powerful and realistic filmatization.
Watch this if you want to get an idea of how Stockholm's criminal underworld is like now-a-days, it's pretty interesting and pretty damn accurate at times, and don't listen to the reviewer below "aidin-mahjouri", he has no idea what he's talking about it seems. Criminals in Stockholm (and pretty much every single kid in Stockholm) do speak like that (very heavy slang) and do horrible things and even worse things than you will see on this show.
In my eyes this is a good production in everything from photography to acting. I'm surprised to read the bad reviews here about everything from soundtrack to the slang and violence used. These reviews feel like they are written by people that are out of touch, and I would advise foreign readers to discard these so you can form your own opinion.If you are somewhat aware of how the modern criminal world works today, you know that this is pretty accurate. Sweden has the most murders by firearm per 100 000 inhabitants of every country in the EU (including the UK). The language and slang used is completely on point, the acting is very good, especially considering the lack of experience of most of the cast. The soundtrack used is the music that is popular in these environments. The violence is not exaggerated, and the use of minors for distribution of drugs and taking blame for crimes they haven't done, since they get more lenient punishment than adults, is also accurate. Like in all fiction though, bits and pieces are added for dramatic effect.All in all this is a strongly recommended watch.
A quality show, I hope people outside Sweden enjoyed this as much as we did!
Good acting and overall good and must watch series!
This is not far from the reality of the small gang wars going on in Sweden. Accents, music, mentality and brutality are all on point. There are even real gangsters acting in the series (Z. E. as Dani) Overall a great series, atleast for someone who speaks swedish!
