Operation Nordic Noir.
I am undertaking a project that I hope will succeed but I think will not.
The project is to find the title of a Nordic Noir series I was watching several weeks ago.
The longest odds - least likely success - are that I will find the name today.
The shortest odds - most likely scenario - are that I will not find the name of the series.
I think I could be in with a chance to solve the mystery as last night I was chatting to a lady who works at the University of Helsinki, and some of the photos on her page on Facebook are similar to those shot in the series.
Well, if I am to stop writing this month, at least this will keep me going for some time. I have come to the decision that barring an accident of fate, I will not find the series; I've trawled several sites and multiple outlets and I am no closer now than I was two months ago. I have a growing selection of Nordic Noir dvds, the ones I am waiting for are Modus season 2, Sorjonen, Karppi, Grenseland, A lot of people do not like Modus, I admit the series is not as tense as either The Killing or The Bridge, but in my opinion it is ahead of some of the ones that people rave over such as Occupied and Fortitude.
The reason I dislike Fortitude is it has Stanley Tucci in. I can't say anything against him as an actor as I have not seen him in many things; I know the character he plays is objectionable, but this is only a part. The thing that gets me the most is I don't like his accent as it is so nasal.
I have no preference to a country, I have watched series from all over Europe and Scandinavia from Inspector Montalbano to Braquo.
