Swedish Dicks stars 

Review of "Swedish Dicks" 8/5/17 by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 8/7c on POP

This series is kind of funny. It's dumb humor, nothing sophisticated. It does have a certain sweetness to it, if you like that sort of thing.  I just find the two guys to be very funny and goofy, and their antics make me laugh. Humor is one of those very subjective things, so you may not like it.  And I'm not saying it's the funniest show on TV, but it's worth your time to check it out.

The show is narrated by Ingmar (Peter Stormare, "Fargo"), a Swedish detective in L.A., down on his luck (is there any other kind?). He runs into this other Swedish guy, Axel (Johan Glans), who's very dopey but optimistic. Ingmar is dour and the complete opposite of Axel, but they make an interesting team. Axel is a failed DJ. Another DJ hires Ingmar to take back his laptop from Axel. They do a great job of making fun of L.A. and all of the detective shows and books about L.A.

Like so many cable TV comedies today, it was originally a web series. However, two interesting facts: 1) it's based on real people, and 2) Keanu Reeves has a small role.


Washed-up former stuntman Ingmar is stuck in the past. Overly optimistic DJ Axel is stuck in the digital world. Ingmar is trying to reinvent himself and get by as a private investigator. When a case leads Ingmar to the annoying DJ, they team up to form a private detective firm, Swedish Dicks, that causes them to investigate some of the strangest cases Los Angeles has ever seen that may seem ordinary at first. Among those are the theft of secret data from an ad agency and an adult-film star who wants the PIs to find her stalker.
