If you like your Danish dramas (and there are plenty who do) then SBS TWO will have The Bridge next month.
The Bridge is a gripping ten-part dramatic crime series from Denmark which stars Danish actor Kim Bodnia (Pusher) and Swedish actor Sofia Helin.
In the first episode, a woman is found murdered in the middle of Øresund Bridge – right on the border between Sweden and Denmark. Saga Norén (Sofia Helin) from Malmo CID and Martin Rohde (Kim Bodnia) from the Copenhagen police department are called to the scene.
What at first looks like one murder, turns out to be two. The body has been brutally cut off at the waist and joined together – the torso of a high-profile Swedish politician and the lower body of a Danish prostitute.
The Swedish and Danish police need to cooperate in a race against the clock, desperately searching for a murderer determined to go beyond all moral limits to get his message across.
Wednesday, 5 September at 8.30pm.
