More On RAID The Award Winning TV Series From Finland

The above video from youtube is the only one I could find with English subtitles. But if you double click on it and go to the youtube page you will see many other videos from the tv series and the movie sequel made of it. You will get an idea of how special this 12 part tv series is and the sequel movie as well. It has a combination film noir and psychological western feeling about it. First off you can see right away the influence of the Italian westerns like the one with Charles Bronson playing the harmonica in Once Upon A Time In The West by Sergio Leone. But it has an old time film noir flavor like the old Humphrey Bogart movies also. I also think it reminds me a lot of the Mickey Spillane books of the 1950s.
