European Film Festival: Fallet
Fallet, which translates to "The Case," isn't a dark murder mystery; it's a spoof of police procedurals with spunk, verve, and a lot of heart. The Swedish series follows a Stockholm homicide detective and British chief inspector, both uninvested and incompetent, who are paired up to investigate the murder of an Englishman at a last-ditch effort to save their jobs. With its humor and sharp social commentary, it's an effective spin on the "Nordic noir" trend that's coiled through most of Western entertainment, a la The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
