Divorced crime reporter Dicte Svendsen (Iben Hjejle, High Fidelity) has returned with daughter Rose to her hometown of Aarhus where she is trying to escape the past and build a new future. Contacted by her father who hasn't spoken to her in years, a sudden and tragic turn of events finds her investigating a prostitution ring, diamond smuggling and a hit-and-run that not only links them all but will bring the unknown, the unpredictable and the deadly into the lives of both Dicte and police investigator John Wagner. Football hooliganism and match-fixing, sado-masochism and murder, missing children and a mother's lost love, Dicte is not afraid of taking risks, sometimes straying on the wrong side of the law and often risking every relationship in her life to get to the truth. These five gripping tales told over ten episodes are drawn from the crime novels of bestselling Danish author Elsebeth Egholm.
Very disappointing second series of Dicte
- Dicte: Crime Reporter: Series 2 review by Rick Mason
Having really got into Series 1 of Dicte we were looking forward to Series 2. The main character was always feisty and pushed the envelope in interesting ways. Sadly the character has morphed into the most unlikeable version she could be. She relentlessly breaks laws, morals and relationships and is detestable to the degree of being unwatchable. It feels like they threw every Scandi trope in the mix and not a single character was remotely likeable. Such a shame.
