It is so frustrating.
It's frustrating for me trying to trace the title of a series I saw a few months ago; I can describe the crux of the show, but no matter what SEO I use, I come up empty.
The series is set in Finland; the central theme is the blocking of a river to enable the building of a new dam to support the construction of a new harbor.
The politicians are determined to buy the land at any cost, most of the time this involves a substantial financial bribe for the people whose lives will get changed when the river gets flooded, but there is one farmer who can't get paid off.
In the end, even he gives in, only when the thugs employed by the politicians burn his barn down killing his son.
I may be able to resolve this mystery as I was chatting to a lady who is at the University of Helsinki this week. In my school time, we did got to Helsinki on a cruise, though we visited Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Leningrad; I never got my wish to visit Norway.
The only way I am going to find the series I was looking for is by accident in an advert on another film, I am waiting for the series Arctic Circle and Zonen to come out on DVD.
