In Swedish with English subtitles. Rough, raw, real. Welcome to the world of Arne Dahl, whose crime novels have been transposed to the screen. The series revolves around cases taken by the 'A Unit', an elite force of officers that includes a woman, an older man, a police officer on probabion, a physically imposing officer, a multi-lingual genius, and an ex-lawyer.
In a brand new second season starting in 1955, love stories bloom, high-risk plans are set in motion and dark secrets come to light. The Löwander family have been running a high-end restaurant Djurgårdskällaren, a classical establishment in Stockholm for decades.
He's got no style, he's got no flash and he's squarely in middle age. But Swedish detective Martin Beck is good at one thing: methodically catching criminals so that they can be put away... for a long time. His tightly-wound partner, Gunvald, is his opposite: an impulsive man who cuts a dashing figure, is in no way politically correct and who never met a boundary he didn't leap across.
