Anno 1790 is an innovative take on the Nordic Noir crime drama genre in which the hero, Daadh, is a controversial surgeon and police commissioner who uses unconventional means to solve murder cases during the Age of Enlightenment. It is Stockholm, 1790, and Europe is in turmoil after the French Revolution -- a beacon of hope to the freethinkers across Europe, and a great threat to the reactionaries and those in power. Daadh observes the ever-changing world around him - a city where tumbledown buildings stand alongside stately manors, and whores and beggars walk the same streets as rich merchants and noble women. The murder cases and the methods of solving them differ from those of our time. But the motives stay the same: revenge, greed, love, jealousy and politics.
