Best Swedish TV series on Netflix or DVD in 2016

Best Swedish TV series out on DVD, Bluray or VOD (Netflix, Amazon).

  1. Bron (21-9-2011 )
  2. A Danish/Swedish production that stepped out of The Killing‘s shadow and made the Scandinavian crime genre its own. Although its main characters might be more unusual, with the police woman being autistic, and with us getting to know more about their private lives than in The Killing, the show is actually a lot more conventionally a thriller show than you might think. In this sense it relies much heavier on the thrilling aspect, and less on the whodunnit aspect. The storyline itself, with as its starting point a dead body that is found exactly where Denmark and Sweden are bordering and forces the two countries to work together, has inspired several remakes. An US one with the Mexican and American police working together, and a British-French one (in the Canal Tunnel).

  5. Real Humans (22-1-2012 )
  6. Real Humans is set in a near-future version of Sweden, where consumer-level robot workers and servants are common. These robots look like humans, act like humans and express human-like emotions. If focuses on the relationships real people form with robots and raises the obvious yet interesting question what it means to be human.

    Real Humans is a decent show, but can be a little soapy. Exploring futuristic themes does not necessary yield entertaining storylines, it appears. Husbands and wives feeling threatened in their sexuality by robots are fun though.
