A few spoilers.
It wasn't bad, but it wasn't really good. It was lackluster for a series show. Sadly, now that I've had time to think about it, it went from three stars to two. Here's why:
Kinnaman was the best, the others – not bad.
The sets, the story, they were run of the mill locations for lower budget shows and a subpar story/plot line. No major twists.
The annoying stuff –
The British girl she makes as a friend (ugh, so annoying)
The villain at the start of the show isn't one about two episodes in and the new one is not scary.
The ultimate annoyance:
Her father wasn't training her to be a killer or assassin, just to protect herself from 'the villain' – the one who had a change of heart and isn't one a few episodes in. The thing is, her father could have EASILY just walked out of there with her a few months or even a year later and taken Hanna to live someplace in the world where the CIA has no influence and had a normal life.
NO ONE WOULD HAVE KNOWN, THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE DEAD AND THE PROGRAM GONE.
So it sorta makes the whole story pointless. Which makes it more annoying.
Overall, they didn't know what Hanna looked like. Her father could have adopted her out in a place like South Africa and no one would be the wiser since the only way they would have found her was because they knew him. If he was out of the equation – she would have completely disappeared to them.
So, 2 stars. Not horrible, not wonderful. Meh with frustrations. Watch it if you're bored.
