“The Wobblies” – On cast flooring [MOVIE REVIEW]

“Beck” is again from the threshold. When remaining we left Martin Beck (Peter Haber), he was once on a gurney looking forward to dangerous mind surgical operation that will both kill him or give him a couple of extra years. Fortunate for him, and particularly for us, he lived to look some other day, some other homicide, and some other scolding from his haridan of a daughter Inger (Rebecka Hemse).

The workforce is again with extra display screen time given to Josef Eriksson (Martin Wallström), the younger, intense detective who doesn’t somewhat measure as much as the air of mystery and intensity of Gunvald Larsson, Beck’s protege within the preliminary seasons. However Gunvald died and Eriksson is as shut as they’ve come thus far. Steiner Hovland (Kristofer Hivju), the mad Norwegian with the purple hair and swirly eyes, reappears as a trifling shadow of his former self. Blanded out, the writers appear to be having bother discovering his heart. Jenny Bodén (Anna Asp) is there, nonetheless quietly bringing insights into the murders, and Oskar Bergman (Måns Nathanaelsson) continues to be incompetent or even lazier than sooner than. It sort of feels that being dangerous at your activity isn’t grounds for dismissal. He’s a lifer and simply drifts thru lifestyles and Tinder, complaining about his non-existent non-public lifestyles (is it any surprise?). The writers are nonetheless having a troublesome time using Ayda Çetin (Elmira Arikan), their deadpan researcher, however hope springs everlasting as a result of there’s nonetheless yet one more episode to be launched. Klas Fredén (Jonas Karlsson), the scary and duplicitous Commissioner, continues to be round providing mundane and idiotic recommendation like “Shut this example temporarily.” However at all times watch out for the mundane.

The most important asset to this season, but even so the go back of Beck, is his successor as the crowd chief, Alexandra Beijer (Jennie Silfverhjelm). She unquestionably confirmed promise in Season 7, however she really comes into her personal in Season 8. Identical in nature to her boss, she’s attentive, considerate, intuitive, and acknowledges the strengths and weaknesses of her friends and acts accordingly, together with Beck, who has returned as their Leader Inspector, at all times judiciously bringing him into the circumstances for session.

Like maximum weddings, this collection has one thing previous: Beck’s detectives nonetheless overstep the bounds of police paintings; one thing new: murders that proceed to perplex; one thing borrowed: quirky neighbor Grannan (Ingvar Hirdwall) along with his neck brace and incredible stories of deering do; and one thing blue: daughter Inger, nonetheless depressed and indignant that her father received’t decelerate.

No new floor is damaged and that’s a excellent factor. There may be not anything so as to add to the former evaluation of “Beck” (“Beck is Again”), simplest that those new episodes are superb and engagingly complicated. So keep tuned.
