The series premiered in
1949. Stopped in 1989.
The series' all dominating character
is the jovial, middleaged janitor (Vicevært in
Danish) Manfred Olsen, whom we follow on his job,
usually with his trusty broom in hand, and in the
upstairs apartment with his family.
Olsen, presented as a relaxed and talkative
janitor, was a dying breed long before the series
stopped, but the readers really took him in and
loved the very played down events featuring the
steadfast and philosophical man with his beret
and smoking pipe.
