Storyline

During a snowy Christmas season in Sweden, psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik finds not only herself but also her autistic daughter drawn into the investigation of a number of disturbing deaths, through which she meets detective Ingvar Nyman of "Rikskrim", a Swedish national police force. Nyman is dispatched to Uppsala to investigate the shocking Christmas Eve murder of bishop Elisabeth Lindgren. In Stockholm, the bodies keep turning up - though the causes of death vary. But before long, Inger Johanne starts noticing a pattern. MODUS is a thrilling story that raises questions about religion, human rights, and the very nature of love itself. It goes beyond conventional crime and peppers the story with red-hot political issues and criticizing intolerance. Written by Miso Film

Excellent Scandie thriller with good characters
9 April 2020 | by robertemeraldSee all my reviews

They used excellent cameras for Modus, with great colour and sharp definition. The cinematography was very good too. I thought it could have used a bit of nature or symbolism with that, as it was so good, and the environment so spectacular for a 'winter' country. The characters are generally good looking and competent actors. The baddie is a classic, so good I wished we'd seen more of him stalking his victims. There are numerous story lines and I'd recommend it as a binge (8 episodes) just so you can remember who's who. It's a very complicated unravelling, and although original for that certainly, you need to pay attention, which isn't always that easy with subtitles. It ends unexpectedly and really well, and thus is satisfying like that. There is, of course, a modern fashion for these shows to pay a lot of attention to people's home lives, which I always find uncomfortable, but in Modus's case it does seem, almost, necessary in most cases. There are many locations and the view sweeps around Sweden's capital with some great Ariel shots at night. Although I'm only giving Modus an 8, I am inclined to think it may deserve higher. I may change this review after I've seen the second season.
