A new Norwegian mystery series from MHz that takes place in beautiful Bergen. Though in this series we only see the beautiful side with the opening credits.
Varg Veum originated as the private detective character in a series of crime novels, written by Norwegian author Gunnar Staalesen, Veum, as he is usually called, lives in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. Veum was a social worker providing assistance to children before he became a private detective. There are 16 books that have been translated into several languages, including English, German, and Swedish. Film adaptations were made, and they are now included in six episodes of 90 minutes, in a series from MHz.
Varg Veum is portrayed by Norwegian actor Trond Espen Seim. Veum is a tall, handsome Norwegian man, very intelligent, he has an excellent grasp for details and his intuition. I would trust this man. Each episode is its own story, and they delve into murder in almost every episode. Veum seems to be involved with every murder case that comes to a particular Police Detective, who seems at first to brush Veum off. But, we later learn, this detective has great respect for Veum, and depends upon him at times. There is a mutual appreciation society. Sex is prevalent, some nudity, power, greed, wealth, the usual issues where murder is involved. Each episode is excellent, and brings some violence, which is often offset with love and sex. Veum becomes involved with some of his clients, but I would be wary of this, you will see what I mean.
I like this series, the right match of mystery, an intelligent investigator and suspense.
