Lulu is a smart and independent woman with her own beauty salon in the suburbs. Leon is a habitual bankrobber with a heart of gold and an insatiable knack for pulling off almost flawless heists. Their life together comes to a screeching halt when Leon gets arrested and sent to jail on their wedding night and Lulu has to assume control of his criminal enterprises. Brimming with irony, this dark comedy is an examination of the outrageous expectations placed on the modern woman.

Immensely entertaining. Not the usual robbery movie. Lulu's character is a great combination of a working mother and wife with great problem solving skills. Good script, good acting, tense. It was a treat to watch each episode.

This starts out like a Breaking Bad in which Walter White has been involved in robberies instead of drugs and he goes to jail around season three, leaving his wife to make sense of things. It's in Danish with English subtitles. You might also enjoy both seasons of Money Heist on Netflix.

I enjoyed the story line, however at times it seemed unrealistic with the mother''s role. A smart business woman with two children and a huge house to run couldn't be this stunned. However it did make for a good story. watch it and see what you think

This series does not take you to where you think you will end up. From one moment to the other, there are such shifts that you wonder if the whole thing was an elaborate play from Lulu and her husband from the very beginning. Worth watching, even if I just wanted to pull my hair in frustration at times.

I watched this as a DVD.
Someone has said it is about the power of women, I did not view it like that. With a husband in jail she is just wants to help him get out & be cleared of the crime he is supposed to have committed.
Along the way there are many ups & down & she deals with them plus manages to take care of her 2 kids.
I enjoyed it & at times was on the edge of my seat to see what would happen next.
I would reccomend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. The actors were very believeable.

To me, the brilliance is in the evolution of the major characters; characters becoming more and more street wise, lessons provided from the drives of an increasingly devious cop.

A family drama of "Lulu & Leon" (original Danish title released in 2009) and their struggles to save their family when Leon was arrested for a bank heist. Liked the characters and verite plot, but the criminal elements were stale, e.g. on human trafficking relative to "The Girl Who Played with Fire 2009," and the villain's ability to carry on with his agenda unimpeded till the end was hard to accept.
