Series one, episode nine
We begin part one of ‘Europa Blues’ (the last doube bill of the series) with a kindly, elderly Jewish man celebrating a birthday with his family. Then we cut to some neo-Nazis heading off to a graveyard for a spot of tomb-defiling. Surely this can’t be going where it looks like it’s going? Well, yes and no.

As usual with ‘Arne Dahl’, a tangled web is being woven, this time also involving a group of apparently trafficked Ukrainian women and the legacy of World War II. Add to that the multitude of stories bubbling away within the police unit itself and there’s sometimes a sense that too many voices are coming together to create a sort of narrative Babel. Still, one of the subplots involves the possibility of cuts to the unit, so perhaps the writers have decided to take action on this score. Involving and expertly assembled stuff.
