Anno 1790 is part mystery, part historical drama, part romance and partially a look at early forensic science. The setting is Stockholm when Europe is in turmoil a few years after the French Revolution. In wonderful period detail we meet aristocrats, functionaries, citizens eking out a living and revolutionaries intent on social change. Enter Daadh, an educated man of the Enlightenment, with one foot firmly planted in the future.

He acutely observes and processes the changing world around him. He is of the Age of Reason, yet his heart usually gets the best of him. Circumstances hand him an unlikely acquaintance named Freund, an erstwhile man of God and erstwhile moral compass for Daadh. Together the two are a fascinating pair of heroes, forming a tentative bond of friendship and dependence that deepens over the course of the series. Throw in a smart, beautiful and unavailable woman to create a tense romantic angle to the story and "Anno 1790" becomes a series that offers something for everyone, especially those that appreciate artful storytelling.

Anno 1790

It was recommended to me and I don't feel misled. It's not wildly exciting, and I don't feel the urge to watch two episodes back-to-back, but I might well stick with it into Series 2. I begin to think Eighteenth Century Sweden must've been very muddy indeed.
