In two new Nordic Noir thrillers, Rolf Lassgard, one of Scandinavia's most popular actors (Wallander, False Trail), assumes a powerful new role as Police profiler Sebastian Bergman. Bergman is strong-minded, politically incorrect, abrasive - and grief-stricken, since he has yet to come to terms with the loss of both his wife and daughter in the 2004 Thailand tsunami.
In the first of the two thrillers, from the creators of the original Wallander TV films, he helps police in his home town solve the murder of a 15-year-old boy who had an affair with one of his teachers. In the second, he attempts to catch a serial killer who seems to be modelling his attacks on those of a jailed killer whom Bergman brought behind bars himself...

Rolf Lassgard establishes clear blue water between his portrayal of Wallander and this new role as a profiler for the police. Always watchable, he plays a broken man, haunted by the death of both his wife and daughter in the 2004 Asian tsunami. His grief is palpable but it is through a return to his work as a profiler that he finds a measure of redemption. On the disc there are two separate cases, one involving a dead 15-year old who had an affair with a teacher, and the other a copy-cat serial killer, who models himself on someone Bergman has already caught. His work in resolving the cases helps to move him from being an unsympathetic character towards becoming a decent human being again. Without wishing to give away a major plot twist, he finds peace at the end through an unexpected family revelation. His sparring with a young, and hostile, policewoman is predictable but good fun and the plots are satisfyingly credible and convoluted. This is an absorbing and entertaining 3 hours and I heartily recommend it.
