Yeah, basically. I’m not sure why but personally i think we are really good at them. Maybe it’s just turned out that way based on the way we swedes are, how our environment is like. For example, i don’t like swedish romance movies/series. They are simply really bad according to me. I think swedes tend to make movies in a more raw kind of way. Something i notice when watching romantic Swedish series. It get’s too cold for my taste but it fits the whole criminal drama vibe, the city and cases that needs to be solved. While for example in kdrama i prefer romance. They have a softer way of making their series, which makes it more fit for romance i think. So it comes down to culture too i suppose. We don’t really have that lovey dovey approach to being a couple as they seem to do in korea.
To sum it up: i think because of our culture, environment and the way we are as people (plus heritage i suppose) has had an impact that we have mostly criminal dramas and are good at them.
