Yet more 'Nordic noir' - but this one is too complex and convoluted. Not bad, just average
- Mammon: Series 1 review by RP
I've now watched several Scandinavian 'Nordic noir' TV series and this is yet another, this time from Norway. That means it's in Norwegian with subtitles.
It tells a complex, convoluted tale of an investigative journalist trying to get to the bottom of a financial / investment conspiracy, which turns out to involve his own brother and with a strange quasi religious element and constant references to the story of Abraham and God's request that he sacrifice his son.
I found it over-complex and difficult to follow in parts as new characters seemed to be constantly introduced. Also, I don't remember it being constantly gloomy with everything in semi darkness last time I was in Oslo...
Not bad, just average. 3/5 stars.
