Review of "Swedish
Dicks" 8/5/17 by
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.
