Crime, Gothenburg style.

Based on actual events, this gritty Nordic thriller is a violent tale of fraud, corruption, deception, racism and murder, laced with scathing social comment and black humour, and exposing the dark side of Sweden's second largest city. Having helmed such high end American shows as The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, director Johan Renck keeps the atmosphere taut and the style cinematic, working with his excellent cast to deliver a slick, powerful piece of incendiary event television.

    Is Friday's showing going to have subtitles the whole way through or do we need to sit through half of it to find out again?

    How do we get out money back?
