One achievement of so-called Scandinavian Noir, the specific aesthetic and dramaturgy of contemporary TV series made in Sweden and Denmark, was the invention of independent and convincing modern characters. Designed like contemporary modern men and women in democratic societies in Europe, these characters are created as active parts of stories dealing with the challenges we have to face today in Europe, not just in the single country that action is situated in. BBC production "From Darkness" is referencing to those Scandinavian productions, but changing design and opportunities of female characters, what will be discussed in that Blog-Post.
