I had just presumed "Crimes of Passion" was Marple in the Snow, but no, it is much more than that and the stories and characters have real depth. The settings are beautiful and the production is acted out superbly. There is great interplay between Puck and the other regular cast members. As the stories themselves are now 60 years old or so they tend to be character led rather than the usual "in yer face" violence we get from modern series. The stories are intriguing, intricate and sometimes sexy!
Can't recommend this series enough.
In each episode, they get Wahlgren's best mate, top Stockholm cop Ola Rapace, involved. And sooner or later, after a lovers' tiff and extramural flirtation usually, Wahlgren, Novotny and Rapace clear up the crime. Set in a time when Swedish cars looked like sardine cans, it's a trifle 'Miss Marple-ish, except for the fact that Wahlgren and Novotny are too hot - well warm - looking to appear in an Agatha Christie novel.
Oddly, people seem to enjoy sticking their fingers in this programme's eyes - I suspect that's because there's no really gross bloody bits.
