English Review

Groups of people from three eras in the past are suddenly appearing in Oslo and elsewhere in the world. The appearance of the corpse of a woman, one of those "visitors", generates a complex police investigation.

Beforeigners cleverly and with abundant doses of biting, ironic and colorful humor face the problems that arise with these "visitors" who are being incorporated into Norwegian society. In this way, immigration, multiculturalism, sects, fundamentalisms, westernization, xenophobia (and the list goes on) are approached from a highly original approach.

But all this constitutes the social framework of the police investigation of the murder, carried out by a charismatic pair of detectives: Lars Haaland, a current Norwegian (Nicolai Cleve Broch) and Alfhildr Enginnsdóttir, an “updated” Viking (the Finnish Krista Kosonen). His private life and complex research, then, will necessarily interact with all those cultural sectors.

Beforeigners is then a successful hybrid of police, social comedy and fantasy.

I wish there was another place to watch this other than HBO. I also read that there will be a second season.
