Dicte is a critically acclaimed Danish crime drama television series that was produced by TV2 and aired from 2013 to 2016. The show stars Ditte Ylva Olsen as the titular character, Dicte Svendsen, a freelance journalist who has moved back to her hometown of Aarhus, Denmark, and who investigates crime stories while also trying to rebuild her relationships with her teenage daughter Rose and her peers.

Based on the bestselling books by Elsebeth Egholm, the show centers around Dicte's investigations, as she finds herself immersed in the darkest corners of Aarhus society. Each episode sees Dicte taking on a new case, ranging from murder investigations to missing person cases and more. Along the way, she draws on her street smarts, wit, and a sharp intuition to solve each case and uncover the truth.

Dicte is supported by a solid ensemble cast, including Iben Hjejle as Anne Skov Larsen, Dicte's best friend and Aarhus Police's public prosecutor; Lars Ranthe as Torsten Jarnvig, a detective lieutenant and Anne's love interest; Dar Salim as John Wagner, a former lover of Dicte and Rose's father; Lars Brygmann as Bo Skytte, Dicte's former boss and current boyfriend; and Stine Stengade as Ida Marie Jensen, a fellow journalist and Dicte's frenemy.

The show's character development is one of its strongest aspects. Dicte's personality is multi-faceted, and her flaws are just as evident as her charms. She is often stubborn and impulsive, but also fiercely loyal and determined to do the right thing. Her relationships with the people around her are complex and nuanced, and they provide a rich source of drama and conflict throughout the series.

Despite the show's focus on crime-solving, it also deals with larger themes, such as family dynamics, addiction, and corruption. The writing is sharp and engaging, with a perfect balance of seriousness and humor that keeps the viewer engaged from start to finish.

The production design of the show is also noteworthy. Each episode is beautifully shot, with plenty of stunning aerial views of Aarhus, and the set design is striking, with plenty of moody lighting, deep shadows, and a generally eerie atmosphere that heightens the tension of the story.

Overall, Dicte is an enthralling crime drama series that is as much about its compelling characters as its twists and turns. With a superb cast, high-quality production, and a consistently gripping storyline, it is well worth watching for fans of the genre.

Dicte is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (30 episodes). The series first aired on January 7, 2013.
