While investigating a case of disappeared sisters, Varg Veum is about to become a father. He realizes that the case has connections to a police investigated murder. Varg obviously is risking his pregnant wife if he wants to follow the case.
User Reviews: /refers to all 12 episodes/ Although I consider myself a fan of Scandinavian crime series, I have to admit that Varg Veum was my first familiarisation with a Norwegian one, I found the character by accident while just being curious whether Norway had something in line with Danish and Swedish creations. The beginning was a bit tardy and the episodes seemed a bit long (almost 1,5 hours instead of usual 45-60 minutes), but realistic incidents, natural development of characters, good acting and picturesque landscape facilitated an intensive watch of all the episodes in sequence. True, not all of them are of equal power and supporting cast is at times stronger than the star Trond Espen Seim (e.g. Bjørn Floberg and Nikolaj Lie Kaas), but the stories are versatile and "the good guys" have several setbacks as well, sometimes even fatal.
PS I you like Varg Veum series, you would like Vares series (Finland) as well – and vice versa. Many similarities regarding characters and approached topics, although the Finnish series includes more odd Nordic humour.
