Crimi Ladies by humon Crimi Ladies by humon
My site humoncomics.com/

My trip back to Denmark made me realize that women have become the preferred main characters in Danish crime shows. The men still get their own shows, but the ladies are running the scene at the moment.
From left to right:

Dicte Svendsen from "Dicte"
Crime reporter. Sneaky lady who has her own methods of getting information.

Anna Pihl from "Anna Pihl"
Policeofficer. Just doing her job and won't take no one's shit.

Sarah Lund from "Forbrydelsen" (The Killing)
Detective inspector. Depressed and boderline autistic, but dedicated and headstrong.

Jasminna el Murad from "Livvagterne" (The Protectors)
Bodyguard. If you want to kill the person under her protection you'll have to get past her first, and that's not happening.

Ingrid Dahl from "Rejseholdet" (Unit One)
Detective Chief Inspector. Tough lady who can have fun with her team, but will put down her foot and give them a good yelling if they don't do their jobs.

The Killing is great. Probably one of the only Danish shows that I've seen in Australia.

Oooh, I've heard of The Killing! I think it was on TV here for a while but I can't be too sure (I don't watch it much anymore), but it looked really interesting! Would anyone recommend it?

Well, it did become extremely popular in the UK and got remade in the US (though I've heard that wasn't near as good - I haven't seen it myself :shrug:) It is mainly about the murder of a young girl and it's disastrous effect on a political and emotional scale of the surrounding people. I'd recommend you to search for the show and see what other people say and then see if you'd watch it or not. I liked it, but it was a bit slow (20 1-hour episodes) and sort of murky with its fair share of red herrings in the plot. The music was fantastic and so was the acting. Subtitles weren't all that great though, but that's just nitpicking. I'd recommend it, if just purely by its great atmosphere, but it'd still be a good idea to look up on the show (on imdb or something) before searching for the episodes.

I have to see some of these series now...

 

...Can I interest you in a series known as Wartime Farm? At the risk of sounding like a bad bar joke, It features two archeologists and a historian who work a piece of land according to a particular era. In Wartime farm they focus on world war two, and that one happens to be my personal favourite. They use technology from the time and even have rations!


I figured you'd love it, but it's okay if it's not your shindig :)

So Rejseholdet has become one of my favorite shows as of late, and I clicked on this just to make sure Ingrid was there. This show(and some others) are helping me learn Danish! This drawing's really awesome :)

Those sound like shows I would like to watch!  and this is from someone who doesn't much care for episodic television, at the moment....
I like empowered ladies, ones who are shown to know how to and be willing to do the job they came to do...:)

The Killing, from AMC? I love that show so much. A large part of it may be due to the fact it's set in Seattle and I live across the water from Seattle :D And sadly some of the stereotypes are true. Western Washington has a bit of a problem with crystal meth. And it does rain a lot, but mid-May through August are nice and sunny.

You didn't? Well, I've heard the Danish original is even better than the adaption, that is, if you don't mind subtitles, of course. :D

Yeah, these Danish shows are getting pretty generic these days, or is that just me? We've had pretty much all of these aired here, and while I found Anna Pihl somewhat refreshing at first, I soon grew tired of it. Oh well, there's always the Off button. Or Netflix. ;)

humon Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
You'll need to give a better explanation. Why are they getting pretty genetic? Because women being the main characters are not enough to make them genetic and that's the only thing I talked about them having in common.

Jonas72 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
I mean they all assemble each other. And I didn't mean it as a criticism of women, but of Danish crime shows. Ok, so bear with me here, but it seems to me that a lot of these characters are generally trying to do a good job in a male-dominated environment, and they usually have a pretty major character flaw, usually from an abusive father/ex-boyfriend or something along those lines. Some, but not all, are single mums. Etc., etc. But I'll be the first to admit that after the first season of Anna Pihl, I haven't really been paying that much attention to these shows, my girlfriend is the one who loves crime shows. So I could be wrong, but this is my impression of it. And I really think it's too bad, because showbiz needs more strong female characters.

Great to see....we are very painfully slowly getting a couple in dear old England- though at the mo I am glad for BBC4, decent subtitles, and someone doing their job in network television.

Did I mention I am a huge fan of your work? No? Well I am totally fan girling over your work and hope to meet in the not too decent future

We had an Americanized 'The Killing' that I saw. I didn't get the borderline autism or depression, so I think they took it out for American audiences.
