Have you watched Swedish TV series Anno 1790?

anno 2
We keep hearing good things about this series and would be interested to hear from any of you who have watched it. Do you think it is Nordic Noir? Does a period piece fit into your idea of Nordic Noir? Does it sit easily within the genre?

There is a good piece by the idle woman on her blog about this period crime drama:

Another here from Euro But Not Trash

You can also find info, a trailer for the UK and details of where to buy the DVD of the show here:

Thanks to the Idlewoman, Euro But Not Trash and Nordic Noir TV

    It’s a terrific series. Almost the only costume drama I’ve ever seen where the costumes don’t wear the actors – they really look as though they are at home in the clothes and the settings. Very sorry there are only 10 episodes.
