Yes it was, by the name Katuhaukka, which is a direct translation.

And here is the synopsis:
In a strange prison, the inmates are called by number, not by name.

Prisoner it is. For me there's only one version, made in 1967 - 1968.

I watched one episode of the new series. Then stopped. It seemed awfully bland by comparison. Although not filming it in Portmeirion might have influenced that.

This series based on fantasy versions of historical events, and it is hard to figure out the primary protagonist. An apocalypse approaches, but most of the rulers are too preoccupied with politics and backstabbing to notice.

Synopsis:

Cigarette-smoking people dressed in white wait and watch, as those who are still there mourn their departed.

Hint:

A police chief, a grieving widow, and a reverend try to find a sense to all that happened, while a mysterious shooter takes revenge on series of black dogs that have started to roam in the neighbourhood.

One of the most intense TV series beginning ever.

Just loved that series. Too bad it had to end.

It can't easily be pigeon-holed into one specific category.

Characters on this show included (among many others): a black white supremacist, an unflappable crack addict, a muppet with an STD, Prince Rogers Nelson, a wholesome family with an unfortunate name, and the two-time winner of the "Hater of the Year" award.

Technically Chappelle's Show, but yes, that's it. Take your turn, sir.

I've never actually seen it in print, only heard it referred to as The Chappelle Show.
