It's on my DVR. It's an intriguing premise.

I'm tiring of characters having asperger's(or something else on the autism scale) in modern tv, film etc.

Plus it seems rather implausible that a woman with this 'disability' could rise to the position of detective in the first place(since so much police work involves reading human behavior etc)

apparently this character's 'quirk' was present in the original Swedish show as well.

Well as someone who has actually Aspberger's Syndrome, i'm not tired of it at all and I dont' find it the least bit implausible.

Did you watch the show? They have her say & do some rather absurd things. which end up hurting the investigation. who knows if its meant to be aspberger's, but whatever it is, its pretty extreme(she's Rain Man-esque)

I saw a few episodes out of curiosity, yeah her character may be a tad exaggerated, but I still didn't find it too implausible.
