Anno 1790

For me being Swedish it is sometimes nice to watch, or read, something which is about Swedish history, something set in Sweden. Problem is, there aren’t many things like films for example about this. I find this really annoying, we have an amazing and rich history and many stories and events that are worth telling about. I could come up with at least 20 different ideas off the top of my head right this minute, stories and events that would make awesome films. But sadly hardly any have been made. Which is one reason I was quite excited first time I heard of a series by the name “Anno 1790″. This is a series made by SVT (i guess it would be our Swedish equivalent of BBC) set, as the name suggests, in 1790 Stockholm! Something Swedish AND historic!!

It was a few years ago when it first came out, but I didn’t have the chance to watch it when it was first on TV, and then it didn’t prove the easiest to get hold off. So it wasn’t until this winter when I finally came around to watching it. And, it was good!

Actually it’s a murder series. I haven’t often been one for watching murder series, but this one of course was historic and set in a 18th century Stockholm! I have often wished I could see Stockholm back then, what it might have been like, tired to picture it. And here this was filmed in streets that I am so familiar with, after all the old town of Stockholm isn’t massive. I found that very exciting!

The story is about a army doctor by the name of Dåådh who is full of ideals and a strong desire to help and try to turn the world into a better place. At a time when much was happening in Europe, when revolution was in full swing in France it could be dangerous to have to strong revolutionary ideals in a country still under royal rule. Dåådh assists an injured man who works as a tutor for the chief of police’s children, he begs him to bring him back to that place, and while he is there he becomes involved in trying to help the police solve a murder. As he does so well he is offered to stay on, to become district police in the area. For someone who doesn’t believe in the way the country is run it is not easy to accept such a position, to be working for those he sees as repressing the people. But the idea that he can do much good in that position persuades him to stay.

So he starts work there solving crimes and murders, dining with fine folk, but still never loosing sight of his true ideals. He works hard to be fair and act for justice, and for everyone to be treated with fairly, no matter what their position is in society. Of course this kind of behaviour makes him both friends and enemies.

It is a good and well-made series I think, the murders and crime part of it adds suspence and some excitement I admit, and it’s not too scary. So I very much enjoyed this series. And so did Andrew. We both loved it.

I know it’s not the most common to find but it is available on Amazon, if anyone is interested in it. :)

Here is a trailer, to give you another glipmse of what the series is like. :)

Both me and Andrew have been getting into 18th century things lately, and this series was just what were in the mood for. I will show you pictures of the 18th century outfits I have made for us both soon. It is an exciting new style for me to try out. :)

I will talk to you all soon, and share some pictures of the sewing projects I mentioned. Until then stay well and happy!

    You are back! :)
    This show sounds amazing. I did not find the time to watch it yet, but the trailer is really promising!
    And I am really looking forward to seeing your and your boyfriends new costumes. :)

  2. Priscilla .W says:

    Very glad to see you back ;-)

    This one looks quite interesting and will have to put it on my list of films to watch . Oh dear, that list often gets very long and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to watch or read all the books/films that I desire.

    As an American, I am also glad that I can see a movie made in by SVT because it is very hard here in the states to find historic period dramas that aren’t BBC or American.

    So, I am eager to see a bit of Swedish history. Much appreciation.

    Can’t wait to see your new creations!

    Anno 1790 is available on DVD? That’s great! I was always a bit disappointed for not seeing it when it was on TV, even though we do get the Swedish TV broadcast here, too. I’m also not a great fan of crime series usually, but if it’s set in a historical period… :)
    Another series you might be interested is one Australian program called Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. It’s a bit like Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple, but set in 1920s Melbourne, Australia, and the main character is very sassy and fashionable :) It’s well written, well acted and the clothes are to die for!

    Regards,

    Noora

    Noora I have never heard of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries before, but on your recommendation I looked up the trailer and it looks great!! I LOVE the look of the series, with the clothes and the whole 20s look! Aaah yes! This is something I simply must watch! Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
