REVIEW: Follow The Money (S3 E5&6/10)

Episodes five and six of Follow the Money are directed by Gustav Möller (recently much praised for minimalistic, intense and award-winning thriller The Guilty).

REVIEW: Follow The Money (S3 E3&4/10)

When the second series of Follow the Money started it felt a tad uninspired that they reused the opening credits from the first one with just a couple of actors replaced. This time around they’ve been given a lot more attention and are little stories in and of themselves. At the start of episode three,…

REVIEW: Follow The Money (S3 E1&2/10)

The first two series of Follow the Money were spent in fancy offices and boardrooms of Energreen and Absalon Bank respectively.

Rebecka Martinsson announces new lead actress for series two

We enjoyed the first series of Swedish crime drama, Rebecka Martinsson, when it aired in the UK on All4/Walter Presents last year. One of its strengths was the performance of lead actress, Ido Engvoll, who brought different dimensions to Rebecka (not least a level of ambiguity). Now we’re hearing that Ingvoll has left the show…
