Storyline

Jenny Bengtsson is a teacher living in Kalmar, Sweden, struggling to stay afloat during her divorce. Her best friend, Doctor Cecilia Stensson, has financial problems after failed investments in the stock market. Every day they're forced to take crap from students, parents, patients and bosses who all expect them to give more than they're able to. They're tired of women always being the ones stuck between family and career and constantly having to struggle to make ends meet. When they both realize that the future is anything other than bright, they decide to do something drastic, insane actually - to rob the main branch of the Stockholm Bank. The Simple Heist tells the story that leads up to the crazy decision to rob a bank, the preparations, the heist itself and the aftermath: does the money solve all their problems or do they just get new ones? How are they supposed to drive a getaway car with a drunk teenager in the backseat? What's the best way to commit breaking-and-entering when ... Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Delightful, entertaining, and funny!
10 November 2018 | by gmurphy127See all my reviews

Absolutely fell in love with this series. The premise is great and the plot moves along quickly and is intricate and entertaining. The performances and chemistry of the leads is wonderful. There is humor throughout that is not at the expense of women or the elderly, but truly shows how ludicrous we structure our society to value youth and see women as one dimensional in their desires and needs. I can't wait for Season 2 and what they get up to!
