The brutal murder of a French citizen sees French homicide investigator Kahina Zadi (Leïla Bekhti) go to Kiruna, Sweden. Together with Rutger Burlin (Peter Stormare) she begins an investigation that soon takes on staggering proportions.
Bjorn Kjellman plays the hapless and luckless Goran Borg with a lot of heart as he loses his job, is on hand to see his wife happily re-married and enjoying her life with a younger man and his daughter has no time for him.
All roads lead to an adventure of a lifetime to India - his friend who convinces him to buy a place on his package tour soon deserts him but Goran ends up falling in love with India and a mysterious beauty - helped along by his new buddy 'Yogi'.
It's daft and unrealistic but really good value - Kjellman plays the downtrodden everyman to perfection who leaves his hometown of Malmo for the first time to find a wider world out there, some of it he doesn't like what he sees but still finds his happiness.
I watched this on Netflix - three, hour long episodes - you can fit it all in within an enjoyable evenings entertainment.
NB: Even though it is for a Swedish audience, most of the series is in English! If you're one of those who doesn't 'like' subtitles, well, you're in luck!
