The description of irreducible finite dimensional representations of finite dimensional solvable Lie superalgebras over complex numbers given by V. Kac is refined. In reality these representations are not just induced from a polarization but are twisted ones, as infinite dimensional representations of solvable Lie algebras. Various cases of irreducibility (general and of type Q) are classified.
