Returning: The Bridge
Danish crime drama returns to SBS ONE next month with 10 new episodes.
The 10-part second seasons sees world-weary Danish inspector Martin Rhode (Kim Bodnia) team up once again with young smart yet emotionally disconnected Swedish inspector Saga Norén (Sofia Helen) 13 months after the events of the first season.
When a coastal tanker leaves the Öresund waterway and is headed straight for the Øresund Bridge, the Coast Guard board the ship and discover there is no crew, and three Swedish and two Danish youths are chained below deck. Saga is put in charge of the case and contacts Martin, who is still haunted by the death of his son. Soon it turns out the chained youths were just the beginning and that someone wants to direct attention to the changing climate and the use of the planet’s resources and will stop at nothing to do it. It turns into a race against the clock to prevent a disaster where many lives are at stake.
