i just saw this series on MHz networks and have a blast! the 1995 product is even better than what we have now in 2015. this series is so cool and so realistic that the tension is so huge causing me sometimes forgot to breath or made me unconsciously hold my breath. there's no special effect, no computerized cgi crap, nothing but purely thrilling human actions. the acting of everyone involved in this great series were just top notched. MHz networks has provided us with many great series, but some of them are nothing but farces, such as all of the so-called 'mysteries' from the Italian writers and producers, don't know why they always put some clowns in the police force. it seems to me that Italian screenplay writers didn't know how to write realistic drama series, they even put a catholic priest to involve in a lot of murder cases. there's also a police series used Venice as the story background, but all speaking German, making the series like Venice was colonized by the Germany, like hong Kong was colonized by the British, so the high ranking police officials were Germans. it just feel funny and ridiculous.
but this 'vendetta' is simply a different advanced production out of Sweden(?), the leading character, Hamilton, is so capable and so professional, even better than British created 007.
i just wish that MHz networks could avoid all of the Italian TV dramas and concentrate on Scandinavian, German or British productions. furthermore, try to avoid those so-called 'mysteries' adapted from the female authors' books, because they often turned out to be ridiculous with poor logic.
