Swedish language TV shows that AREN'T crime/thrillers??
I've been looking for a Swedish language TV show with English subtitles that I can stream from the US. Not a huge fan of the murder mystery shows, but it seems like that's what 90% of available Swedish shows are. I tried "Welcome to Sweden", but I wasn't a huge fan. Any advice?
I really enjoy watching "Vem Vet Mest", a trivia gameshow which you can stream from the SVT website. I learned about it here in the discussion forums where someone said it was a good show to watch to learn new vocabulary and hear accents/dialects from across Sweden...and I completely agree.
Hi! It is in fact hard to encounter Swedish series that aren't to do with crime. On the other hand I find these extremely edifying as they portray the mentality very well and on top of that are so much better than most crime series in whatever country (apart from The Wire, maybe). Try and learn Norwegian, then you can watch "Liliyhammer" or "Dag".
I agree with you, i don't like much crime and thrillers too xD. The only thing i have been able to find is this site:
There's Äkta Människor, athough I guess it is a bit thriller-y—I think of it as sci-fi.
What about children's programs? Scandinavians do love their crime fictions.
lol that seems to be the case. I'd rather not watch children's programs, but if they're aimed at teens that's fine.
