Wonderful reviews for ‘The Truth Will Out 2’
The Truth Will Out 2 premiered this weekend on Viaplay and promptly received rave reviews in the press, which laud the second season as even better than the first. The crime drama series is based on an original idea by the award-winning author and criminologist Leif GW Persson, and is written and created by Aron Levander and Hans Jörnlind.
“The Truth Will Out 2 gives us this year’s best Swedish TV season so far. /…/ Robert Gustafsson continues to deliver on the highest of levels, in what is without a doubt one of his career’s best and most gripping roles. The Truth Will Out season two raises the stakes also for its other characters, in what is both an impressive and cathartic manner. /…/ To conclude: When all the actors’ impressive performances are paired with a (from beginning to end) well-written script […] The Truth Will Out 2 succeeds in standing out from the crowd in the otherwise so crowded crime genre. There is no doubt that Peter Wendel’s story is time well spent before the TV.”
“Freed of excessive motions, [The Truth Will Out 2] stands out from the crowd thanks to how different it feels; angsty, subdued, controlled, believable. A big part of the reason why the series works as well as it does is Robert Gustafsson, who is once more phenomenal in his role as the cold case group’s sorrowful, head-strong and at times easily distracted leader, Peter Wendel. /…/ Also Ia Langhammer’s for the genre rather odd character, Barbro Svensson, is an important puzzle piece. /…/ The five episodes leave you hungry for more. Here’s hoping there will be.”
“The Truth Will Out 2 is even better than its first season.”
“Horrific scenes are woven together with both suspense and humor in a genius way. Robert Gustafsson performs his life’s best role as the distracted and resigned workaholic [Peter Wendel]. /…/ The television series keeps the standard high and is hands down one of the best contemporary Swedish crime dramas there is.”
