Yes, it really is an exceptional series. With regard the Vietnam war; HUE a book about the U.S. Marines fighting there. I haven't read a better book and highly recommend it. I read it before I visited Hue a couple of years ago and it felt a little eerie just walking alongside the river where most of the fighting took place. As for the politicians, don't forget many of them have proud military histories.

Rebecka Martinsson I wasn't completely sold on this series of stories in two-parts from the first pair but it's turning out to be very good.
Another Swedish one with English subs, this one is on Acorn TV if you have that...other sources if you don't.
Great scenery too.

Living in the great white north I should probably prefer stuff from Miami or something but there's something about frozen lakes and snowmobiles

I have succumbed to peer pressure The other wrinklies here kept on poking fun at my TV-free existence. So I have yielded and acquired a Logie-Baird Apparatus.

Roadkill...A 4 part mini series, staring Hugh Laurie and Helen McCory. It was shown on UK TV last week. Well worth watching.

Thanks for the reminder. I'd forgotten about that. Have to check out The Undoing too

Queen's Gambit on Netflix. For a chess drama, it has been rather good.
