I am a pushover for character-driven productions and am therefore a big fan of this one. It is an intriguing plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat--often with tension and in fear for the safety of the characters you are beginning to know, understand, and care about!

Engrossing story with lots of crumbs dropped early on. Requires attention throughout which is why I enjoy series so much. That said, the atmospheric parts can slip by while you're trying to connect the crumbs. The color pallette supports the low speed of justice.

The two leading actors are accomplished at facial nuances...the eyes shifting just before the camera swings away, the tip of the head suggesting,"I don't think so."

The episodes seem neither stretched nor condensed. The director is a person of minute details with a strong sense of pace.

I am thankful for subtitles, which allow me to enjoy non-English works such as this one.

Overall a fair production, but not nearly as good as other Scandinavian TV crime series and movies. The overt PC characters, plot and PC-driven drivel dialogue are all over this one and especially in season 2. It's a bit much.

The main male character- Ingvar, the detective and love interest of main character Inger Johanne, is pretty much written as a pathetic wet rag in Season 1.

Swedish detective thriller Modus follows psychologist and ex-FBI profiler Inger Johanne Vik as she finds herself and her autistic daughter drawn into an investigation surrounding a series of disturbing and brutal deaths. I certainly wanted to see this series to the end, but the episodes have a lot more violence than I usually expect from PBS. Kristi & Abby Tabby

At first it’s a bit confusing sorting out the characters and yes there are some holes in the storyline, but it is atmospheric, well acted and kept us watching.

A few holes in the story plus comic charm of Swedes trying to sound like West Virginians at FBI HQ but so beautifully filmed that all is forgiven. No doubt makes Sweden today look much better than it does post-invasion. Perhaps not surprising in the circs that Swedes have perfected their ability to portray terrifying physical violence. Not a series for those who might be uncomfortable with open expressions of gay affection and sexuality rarely seen in real life anywhere, mercifully. Nor is this a series that would assist would-be parents in child minding.

All in all, an excellent armchair view of wonderful old Swedish architecture and wintry coastal geography.
